Tz Climate Conference Calls for Action

The EcoACT Project organised the first National Climate Change Adaptation Conference at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dar in March. The conference was attended by 146 representatives from international organizations, academia, non-government organizations, civil society organizations, sector ministries from central government, local government authorities, and the smallholder farming community who shared lessons and experiences during the conference.

The conference participants developed a Declaration which calls upon government, development partners and the international community to provide the political leadership and full support to establish policies, programmes and plans charting the journey to effective climate change adaptation and climate resilient communities.

In particular it calls for urgent action to address the barriers we have clearly identified, leading to effective policy and legal frameworks; improved financial and technical capacity; improved coordination, institutional arrangements and mandates; and effective knowledge generation, management and information sharing.
