Description of the Project
Climate change is one of the most general threats to peace and security worldwide at the least at this moment. However it has been obvious that not many people would list this as a key factor in international relations and domestic welfare. Climate change touches all areas of security, peace building, and sustainable development. The impacts of climate change are already adversely affecting vulnerable communities, as well as stretching the capacities of societies and governments. Climate change is best understood as a threat multiplier‘, i.e. something that interacts with existing pressures (such as social conflict, economic inequality, large-scale migration, or competition for resources) and further compounds these issues—increasing the likelihood of instability or violent conflict.

Climate change: ―Who‘s‘ responsibilities‖ is an initiative aiming to raise awareness on ones‘ responsibilities to the cause and effects.

Project Activities

Mangroves also help prevent erosion by stabilizing sediments with their tangled root systems. They maintain water quality and clarity, filtering pollutants and trapping sediments originating from land. Despite these benefits there has been destruction of mangrove and other forests harvesting which at the end contribute significantly to the climate change.

Volunteers will be hosted in communal house in the community. Basic accommodation facilities will be provided. Expect to share rooms with or other volunteers from the same or other projects. (No mix of different sex in the rooms). Volunteers‘ relatives and friends can visit or staying over upon special approval. Bring with you; Mosquito net, Bed sheets (at least 2 pieces) and pillow if you prefer one, Towels, Rubber mattress and Mosquito repellent.

Trying a variety of foods from other cultures is part of UVIKIUTA‘s philosophy for an authentic experience in Tanzania, and may be both fun and challenging. Food on our projects generally reflects the local cuisine. Some foods that are part of a regular diet at your home country may not be available during the program. Vegetarians will be accommodated. However volunteers with more specific dietary requirements may need to supplement the included meals at their own expense. Participants with food allergies (e.g., nuts) must inform the organisation about the existence and severity of the allergy.Three meals per day are provided to the Volunteers at the accommodation. Meals in transit between airports and to/from Project, during tourism or outside designated project area are volunteer‘s responsibility.
