Resilient Assessment in the remaining division: Ngorongoro Division
Decentralised Climate Finance Project Tanzania conducted a Resilience Assessment (RA) from 1st to 6th May 2017 in Karatu.
Representatives from International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)), HakiKazi Catalyst (HKC), District Officials, Institute of Rural Development Planning (IRDP) and Local Government Training Institute (LGTI) facilitates this exercise as part of finalizing pending divisions that were not included during the first assessment.
In 2014 resilient assessment were done in nine divisions in Longido, Monduli and Ngorongoro districts.
The resilience assessment is a participatory process allowing local people, differentiated by production system, gender and age, to articulate the rationale of underpinning their livelihood strategies. It differs from other planning approaches in that it seeks explicitly to enable and empower local people to explain to those external to their community, such as government planners or NGO staff, the logic of their production strategies in the face of climate variability and change. It provides an opportunity for local government and communities to discuss how local livelihood function and interact, the factors that constrain their resilience to the impact of climate change and practical ways to build adaptive capacity and long term resilience.
