National strategy for Great Green Wall initiative in offing 

TANZANIA is getting closer to have a national strategy and action plan for the implementation of the Great Green Wall initiative aimed at combating climate change, halt desertification and transforming lives of the people.

Government technocrats dealing with environment issues from the Vice-President’s Office and the First Vice-President’s Office in Zanzibar met with development partners, environment experts and scholars in Dar es Salaam on Thursday on a validation workshop of the National Action Plan for the implementation of the Great Green Wall in Tanzania.

The Great Green Wall, launched in 2007 by the African Union (AU), is a game changing initiative aimed at restoring the continent’s degraded landscapes and reversing trends in desertification, climate change, and biodiversity loss through a common set of interventions.
