These periodic extreme events cause major macro-economic costs, reduce economic growth and affect livelihoods: These events also reduce long-term growth and development and it is clear that Tanzania is not adequately adapted to deal with existing climate risks.
These changes will affect many key sectors, possibly affecting agricultural production, health, water availability, coastal zones, energy use, infrastructure, and biodiversity and ecosystem services including forestry and tourism. It will also lead to potentially large economic costs.
Any impacts are likely to have disproportionately strong effects on the poor, as such vulnerable groups have fewer resources to adapt to climatic change. The costs of adaptation are still emerging but adaptation needs could be high for Tanzania.
There is a strong justification for adaptation financing; however, accessing new funds will require the analysis of the options and the costs of adaptation, as well as the necessary institutional capacity. At the national level, following a low carbon growth future can have significant economic benefits as well as having other social and environmental benefits.
What are development partners and Tanzania doing? To better understand the economic impacts of present and future climate change in Tanzania, the development partners group, with funding from UK DFID Government, are funding a study to analyse economic impacts of climate change over the next year ready for December The aims of this study are to: Assess climate change impacts and their economic costs for Tanzania.

Use the results to inform decision-making at domestic, regional and international level. Study Overview The study will use a multi-level approach that builds-up several lines of evidence on impacts and adaptation.
It combines top-down sectoral economic assessment with bottom-up case studies on vulnerability and adaptation. These local studies allow consideration of livelihoods, development and poverty alleviation, which would otherwise be missed by a high level economic assessment.
The combined evidence across all areas provides information for different objectives, from project level through to national priorities and the international negotiations. National Oversight The methodology emphasises national ownership and long-term sustainability through the inclusion of national bodies, and a collaborative partnership approach with local teams.
A series of events will ensure that stakeholders are identified, consulted and informed, with the objectives of building national capacity and taking advantage of local knowledge.
Communications products and events will be used to disseminate findings.Tanzania - Overview of economy The area that now comprises Tanzania came under the colonial dominance of Britain and Germany in the late s and early s.
