Produced by Real2Reel Film Productions, www.real2reel.org Tanzania is uniquely rich in wildlife and natural resources, with over 28% of the country directly protected through national parks, game reserves, forest reserves and other conservation areas. However protected areas are not sufficient to alone accommodate wildlife migration patterns, which often run outside these zones causing conflicts with the populations settled there. In 1998, USAID joined hands with the Government of Tanzania, other donors and conservation NGOs, to undertake a bold new approach in community based conservation. Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), which are community owned and managed conservation areas, have emerged as the best hope for mitigating human-wildlife conflict outside protected areas.

Our country manager HRNS Tanzania Ina Wengrzyk talks about climate smart & sustainable farming practices. We are promoting sustainable development for small scale coffee farmers. Coffee farmers learn how to use both cash crops and food crops. They are also trained in techniques how to protetct their farms from severe weather conditions and how to become climate change resilient. The impacts are better yields and stronger soil. Coffee farmers get better market access and can send their children now to school.
Tanzania's central bank has announced new rules that will force banks to hold more capital to withstand financial shocks. This follows a sharp rise in non-performing loans. Banks and financial institutions shall be required to maintain a capital conservation buffer of 2.5 percent of risk-weighted assets and off-balance sheet exposures.

The island of Kilwa Kisiwani is located in a large bay on the coast of southern Tanzania, a six-hour drive from the capital, Dar es Salaam. Reachable only by boat from the small mainland town of Kilwa Masoko, the island is home to extensive ruins dating from three different periods of occupation. The earliest standing ruins are from the eleventh century, when the first Sultanate was established at Kilwa by a Persian prince. Two important structures dating from this era still stand. The first is the Great Mosque, which was built in the fourteenth century and was once the largest mosque in sub-Saharan Africa. The other is the palace at Husuni Kubwa, built between 1315 and 1330 and renowned for its spectacular pools and courtyards. Learn more: https://www.wmf.org/project/historic-sites-kilwa...

Chimpanzee numbers have declined over the years because of deforestation, bushmeat trade and disease. Today there are only 300,000 chimpanzees left in the wild. Google technology, including smart phones and tablets, empowers local communities to better monitor, manage and protect forests. And forest protection helps preserve the remaining chimpanzee habitat.

Along the northern coast of Tanzania, a series of innovative development projects are combining conservation efforts with health and livelihood interventions. In Healthy People, Healthy Environment: Integrated Development in Tanzania, we meet Rukia, Mahija, and Fidea from the Pangani and Bagamoyo districts who demonstrate how these "population, health, and environment" projects are improving their lives, their environment, and their community. Community members are some of the most important tools of the PHE approach -- local villagers become peer educators who can discuss the linkages of conservation and health with their neighbors and help spread the use of interventions such as clean cookstoves, sustainable seaweed farming, and reproductive health services.

Tanzania takes conservation very seriously. From park fees, to senior level initiatives to discourage poaching and to protect their animals, the country invests heavily in preserving its natural resources. One of the great success stories is the Black Rhino Project which was founded in 1995 and has grown the Black Rhino Population from 3 to nearly 40 animals. It's an incredible success and a wonderful project which involves significant resources, time investment, and risk of personal harm for the guards and rangers who help keep the animals safe. For this episode of the vlog I asked the park ranger on duty, Ahbdi Du'de, to tell me a bit more about the project, the rhinos, and his service.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. Ngorongoro was named by the Maasai as El-Nkoronkoro meaning Gift of Life. This was because they were migrating from Central Africa for a permanent settlement. That is why the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is mostly occupied by the Maasai. The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater, which formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago, is 610 metres (2,000 feet) deep a...
Africa is a continent of change. The African Union’s Agenda 2063 calls for an integrated prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena. This vision is underpinned by commitments to prosperity, political unity, peace and security, strong cultural identities, values and ethics, people-driven development, and good governance. As investments in agriculture, infrastructure, trade, and power are reshaping the continent, what are the implications for the underpinning ecological systems? With a mission to ensure wildlife and wild lands thrive in modern Africa, AWF leverages 20 years of experience delivering conservation and livelihood outcomes through landscape approaches to deliver today’s agenda in African.
