Climate Justice

CARE is an active partner in climate justice operations in Tanzania.

Care adopts a comprehensive approach to climate justice that integrates environmental sustainability, gender equality and social inclusion. It works towards building resilience, reducing vulnerabilities, and promoting adaptive capacities of communities, while ensuring the protection of human rights and addressing systemic inequalities.

As the global climate emergency intensifies, it is estimated that an additional 132 million people will be pushed into poverty by 2030 due to climate change.

Tanzania is highly vulnerable to impacts of climate change. The main challenge lies not in the quantity of available water planning and management quality. As a result of poor planning or inappropriate governance, fewer than 50% of people in rural areas have access to improved water sources.
