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.

Featured here are WWF projects in Tanzania, like RUMAKI, a collaborative fisheries management project working across three districts in southern Tanzania, Dar Sustainable Charcoal project, and a Climate Change Adaptation project. Between them the projects have helped to address biodiversity loss, natural resource degradation and livelihood vulnerability by better securing fish stocks, the raising and planting of tens of thousands of tree seedlings, demonstrating that charcoal can be produced sustainably, providing access to saving and loan groups through which members develop small businesses and studying and mitigati...
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.

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.
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...
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. Executive Producer - Sean Pe...

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.

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.

The Maasai steppe of North East Tanzania is a significantly dry environment with an increasingly unpredictable rainfall pattern. Like many such areas, intensification and expansion of these dry condition is being exacerbated by the high and increasing water demands of human activity and improper use and management of dry land topography. The project main objective is to promote conservation and restoration of semin arid lands in Kibirashi village brought about by uncontrolled and widespread grazing through rainwater harvesting and storage.

In the summer of 2014, I worked for Farm Radio International where I travelled to remote villages to interview farmers. In the southern Tanzanian districts of Liwale and Newala, over 50 schools are embracing conservation farming. With traditional farming, farmers - who make up 75 per cent of the population - are forced to move from one land to another due to soil erosion. This has been a particular concern over the years, as the population increases. But by learning the new practice, students are able to re-use the land for longer and harvest profitable crops.
