Landscape Conservation in Western Tanzania
The Landscape Conservation in Western Tanzania (LCWT) activity works to protect endangered chimpanzee populations, safeguard their habitat through effective land use planning, and empower local communities by supporting more productive and sustainable livelihoods in the Gombe-Masito-Ugalla (GMU) landscape.
The program’s activities include:
- Natural Resource Management: Building the capacity of local governments to facilitate conservation practice and effective natural resource management.
- Land Use Planning & Sustainable Development: Helping local governments and communities implement sustainable land use plans and livelihood development.
- Population, Health and Environment: Expanding activities to improve awareness of and access to reproductive health and family planning resources.
- Monitoring: Improving monitoring of conservation and development targets and threats using innovative technologies to compile, analyze and share data as part of a decision support and alert system. The information from the system will enable JGI and local stakeholders to test, validate and adapt decisions that will guide LCWT activities.
- Environmental Education: Expanding the reach and effectiveness of community-based sensitization and environmental education efforts to inspire behavior change that will protect chimpanzees and their habitats
