Abstract:

Die negativen Auswirkungen des Klimawandels hemmen seit langem die Bemühungen um eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung in den meisten Entwicklungsländern. In Tansania wird die Situation noch durch Faktoren wie mangelnde Transparenz, wenig zivilgesellschaftliche Beteiligung, Korruption und begrenzte Rechenschaftspflicht verschärft. Hier verstärkt der Klimawandel die Lage in den sozialen und ökologischen Schwachpunkten, insbesondere in den Sektoren Land- und Forstwirtschaft, Energie, Flora und Fauna, Trinkwasser- und Abwasserversorgung, Gesundheitswesen, Tourismus und Fischerei. ... Es besteht aber weitgehend Einigkeit darüber, dass die aktuelle Unterstützung nicht ausreicht, sondern dass Klimafinanzierung angemessen, vorhersehbar und langfristig planbar sein muss, um den stetig steigenden Finanzbedarf des Landes zu decken. Zudem fordern Stakeholder gemeinsam auf nationaler Ebene von der tansanischen Regierung, dass die für den Klimaschutz erhaltenen Mittel auf verantwortliche, effiziente und transparente Art und Weise eingesetzt werden, um den verletzlichsten Bevölkerungsgruppen wirksam zu helfen.

Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to show how climatic change in Africa is expected to lead to a higher occurrence of severe droughts in semiarid and arid ecosystems. Understanding how crop productions react to such events is, thus, crucial for addressing future challenges for food security and poverty alleviation. The authors explored how temperature and rainfall patterns determined maize and beans production in Hai District in Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania. Annual food crops were particularly sensitive to the drought and maize and beans yields were lower than perennial crops during the years of drought. The authors also report strong and significant association between maize and beans production with temperature and rainfall patterns.

Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to investigate climate change perceptions and adaptation strategies in the communities of Morogoro region of Tanzania. Climate change is a vital issue of global concern. Rain fall data trends collected from different meteorological stations in the region were useful in assessment of climate variability and change trends from the historical perspective. In addition, quantitative interviews, surveys and focussed discussion groups were used to collect data capturing past and present trends in the catchment, and reasons provided by 199 respondents from a total of six villages.

The data were collected with the aid of trained research assistants and trained graduates selected from each of the randomly select villages. Significant differences in rainfall intensities have been recorded by use of feedback results from analysis of variance tests conducted. Major indicators of climate variability and change include: increased dry spells (39.7 per cent), drying of rivers (34.7 per cent), a reduction in water flows (14.6 per cent) and poor economy of the area (11.1 per cent). The scope of the study does not cover certain aspects such as the spatial and temporal changes in daily temperature which could have provided important and additional dimension. This study also did not take into consideration institutional arrangements required to successfully implement national adaptation programmes to climate change. Finally, it is important to remember that peoples’ perceptions determine the social mental picture of climate change. The study suggests the need for leverage on resource use through education and good governance strategies to be employed by resource planners, leaders and policy makers.
