Empowering Communities
Adapting to Climate Change
CHOLOLO ECOVILLAGE
This project is funded by the European Union
PROJECT TITLE

Empowering Vulnerable Rural Communities to
Adapt and Mitigate the Impacts of Climate
Change in Central Tanzania
This project is funded by the European Union
AIM

To strengthen capacity of vulnerable rural
communities to adapt to climate change for
improved livelihoods and natural resource
management.
This project is funded by the European Union
OBJECTIVES





To transform Chololo into a thriving eco-village – a model of
good practice in climate change adaptation and mitigation;
To identify, test, evaluate and share innovative adaptation
technologies and approaches;
To support the village community to agree and implement
land use plans and natural resource management practices;
To empower women to act at the forefront of the
transformation, with increased authority and reduced
workload;
To increase household food security and incomes, and
improve livelihoods.
This project is funded by the European Union

CHOLOLO CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS





Drought – rain season starts later, finishes earlier, less predictable, hence
change in crop calendar, crop losses, low agricultural productivity, lowered
incomes, food shortage and recurrent famine strike;
Deforestation - loss of vegetation, increased desertification, reduced animal
forage/pasture, shortage of fuel wood and timber, increased women’s
workload, increased land pressure due to poor natural resource
management (NRM);
Flooding and strong winds – leading to soil erosion, crop losses, land
degradation, and declining soil fertility;
Human diseases: skin diseases, cholera and diarrhoea;
Livestock diseases/crop pests: e.g. Rift Valley Fever, army worm, calidea
bugs, stink bugs;
Inadequate ground water recharge, lowering water table, increased salinity,
leading to shortage of drinking water for domestic use and livestock, and
low availability/poor quality of water for crop production
This project is funded by the European Union
COMMUNITY COPING STRATEGIES
Current coping strategy
Effectiveness
Chololo pits used to retain soil moisture
Very little
Analysis
Poorly spaced and filled.
Application of FYM
Very little
FYM not applied correctly
Early maturing / drought resistant
varieties
Some how. Good number of farmers
practice
Can build on this.
Livestock fodder conservation for dry
season
Very little
Limited application
Moving livestock elsewhere – to other
villages
Very little
Limited application
Deepening hand dug wells
Short term only as water table keeps
dropping
Need aquifer monitoring / recharge
Fetching water from next village (3 km)
It is highly practiced
Unsustainable
2hrs round trip.
Forest conservation bye laws
Bye-laws not enforced.
Lack of community control of nat res.
