Sustainable Land Management Kilimanjaro

Summary

SLM
Terrace farming in Mwanga District,Kilimanjaro region as one way of reducing land degradation

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa and also the most defining feature of Tanzania. The Kilimanjaro eco system provides provisioning services, cultural services and supporting services (soil formation, nutrient cycling and primary production).Indeed the region hosts different plant species and birds. The ecosystem is however experiencing an extensive process of degradation and deforestation with serious consequences on its ability to continue providing these services. Degradation is driven by a set of complex and interrelated factors such as rapid increase  of a population largely dependent on natural  resources, land use change, poor land management practices, unsustainable harvesting of natural resources, migration, declining commodity prices and climate change.

Objective:

The project aims to protect and sustain land management activities along the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
