Passing on the Gift Approach for Climate Change Adaptation Strategies: Igunga Eco-Village, Tanzania. A case study
The Igunga Eco-village project aims to increase the resilience of 9 local farmer communities that are strongly affected by the adverse effects of climate change. Through a Farmer Field School approach, farmer groups are trained on a wide range of proven climate adaptation technologies, including integrated pest control, tree planting and renewable energy sources.
Also innovative techniques to Recharge, Retain and Re-use water (3R) are tested and upscaled.
The project has been developed and is executed by the Igunga District Council, Aqua for All,
ICIPE, Heifer Tanzania and Heifer Netherlands.
