Climate Smart Landscapes: Integrating Mitigation, Adaptation and Development in Shinyanga Region, Tanzania


Competition for land has increased tremendously with growing population. Very often food, fiber and other land use functions such as biodiversity conservation have been addressed separately, with little synergy sought between one or more functions. Climate change mitigation and adaptation have also been pursued mostly separately. Landscape approaches have been increasingly advocated as a way of bringing about integration and synergy among these multiple functions and thus enhancing effectiveness and efficiency of natural resource management. This policy brief reviews experiences in the Shinyanga landscape in Tanzania in light of synergies between mitigation, adaptation and development
