New World Bank Financing for Tanzania will Enhance Agricultural Productivity and Improve Resilience to Climate Change

New financing approved by the World Bank will enable at least 300,000 Tanzanian farmers, nearly half of them women, to adopt resilience-enhancing technologies and practices to increase their productivity, while facilitating access to assets and services for up to 1.8 million more farmers. โ€œAgriculture is key to inclusive economic growth and rural poverty reduction in Tanzania, and the region more broadly,โ€ says Nathan Belete, World Bank Country Director for Tanzania. โ€œThis new program underscores the importance of harnessing the potential of agriculture-led growth to strengthen food systems resilience while generating jobs.โ€ Multiple shocks are affecting African food systems, with extreme weather, pest and disease outbreaks, and political and market instability becoming more frequent. Russiaโ€™s invasion of Ukraine is further exacerbating these impacts by disrupting the global food, fuel, and fertilizer markets. As a result, an estimated 73 million people in the region are projected to experience food stress or a food crisis emergency. โ€œIncreasing food systems resilience and strengthening Tanzaniaโ€™s ability to adapt to the challenges of climate change requires a transformation in institutional systems and ways of working,โ€ says Emma Isinika Modamba, World Bank Senior Agricultural Economist and Task Team Leader for the TFSRP. โ€œThis program focuses on resilience-building by increasing access to climate-smart technologies, early warning systems, and drought resistance.โ€ The FSRP supports participating countries in prioritizing medium-term investments that can transform and strengthen the resilience of their food systems. It helps countries to re-build their productive capacity, improve the management of their natural resources, strengthen food value chains and access to markets, and improve policies, national and regional, to enhance the resilience of the sector. Although the program prioritizes medium-term investments to enhance resilience, it can also provide a range of short-term support measures in case of a deteriorating food security situation. The FSRP is central to the World Bankโ€™s engagement in the region, which prioritizes enhancing human development outcomes and increasing the resilience of populations in a region undergoing complex overlapping challenges. https://www.worldbank.org/en/news/press-release/2023/05/31/new-world-bank-financing-for-tanzania-afe-will-enhance-agricultural-productivity-and-improve-resilience-climate-change
