KADETFU is planning to implement a project on CLIMATE CHANGE AWARENESS
CREATION in which a series of seminars and workshops under this project
will be held.
KADETFU is focusing on ensuring that awareness on Climate change is spread to the community so as to minimize the effects through promotion of environmental management systems and reduce pressure on exploitation of living and non-living resources in KAGERA region. It also aims at decreasing its impact through sustainable utilization of resources. Additionally the project focuses on identification of the most affected areas in the project area and thereby plans on rehabilitation through participatory planning. In order to attain the intended goal, KADETFU will also conduct workshops on impact mitigation. The project will involve Trainers and Consultants on Climate change as well as prominent people with good experience on climatic issues and their mitigation strategies.

KADETFU has been using among other approaches the sanitation micro-credit revolving fund scheme in her previous project and it has shown remarkable achievements.
Sanitation micro-credit revolving fund scheme is a strategy for bringing about transformation and improved delivery system for water and sanitation services in the rural and urbanized communities. The overall objective of the micro-credit scheme (SMcS) is to establish a sustainable revolving water and sanitation credit fund in order to meet the credit needs of poor households to get access to clean water and improved sanitation. It is a mechanism for sustainability as the fund will revolve from one community to another even after the donor exit. The driving force for this strategy is “social marketing” that creates “social demand” for services.

KAGERA DEVELOPMNT AND CREDIT REVOLVING FUND
A CONCEPT PAPER ON PROMOTION OF UPLAND RICE FARMING IN TANZANIA
(A PILOT PROJECT IN KAGERA, MWANZA AND COAST REGIONS)
1.0 BACKGROUND INFORMATION
According to the National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (NSGRP) (MKUKUTA), most of the communities in Tanzania live below the poverty line, the indicator being that they live below 1 US$ per day. They experience food scarcity and food insecurities overtime. Nevertheless, there are no any early warning initiatives to overcome calamities such as drought and deficiencies. In order to address this and attain MKUKUTA objectives and the Millennium Development Goals (e.g. MDG-1) Eradication of Extreme Poverty and Hunger by half by the year 2015â€ several interventions have to be taken that includes, eradicating hunger by ensuring food security while taking into account environmental sustainability of the land resource.
