Climate love


LEAD Foundation together with @Justdiggit and Erbacher Foundation aim to bring back vegetation and improve the livelihood of agro-pastoral households who heavily depend on their pasture lands and farm soils.
The project aims at improving peoples livelihoods and climate change resilience in Monduli district, Arusha, which is one of the driest areas in the country with the majority of people living in the region being the Maasai.
The methods that will be used are Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) and Pastoralist Managed Natural Regeneration (PMNR) to restore the degraded rangelands in the area which are fast, low cost and sustainable and will allow pastoralists inhabiting the most degraded landscapes to restore their pastures lands and farm soils.
The Maasai are a nomadic community whose main source of income and survival is livestock keeping. Due to drought, they are struggling with insufficient pasture resources.
Having this project will have a positive effect on water availability, crop yields, soil health, and grass and fodder for livestock. On a larger scale, regreening degraded land has a cooling effect on the (local) climate.
The project is expected to reach more than 1200 households in the district targeting at least 400 pastoral households to have restored 32,000 trees and 200 hectares of rangeland.
