Impact and Lessons from the CARE-WWF Alliance Project in Nachingwea District, Tanzania

November 8, 2022

Nachingwea, a district in the uniquely biodiverse Ruvuma landscape, is one of Tanzania’s poorest regions. Its communities rely largely on subsistence farming and are increasingly subject to the impacts of climate change, such as erratic rainfall resulting in droughts and floods. Women are especially vulnerable to these events due to the gender roles and socioeconomic marginalization that reduce their access to information, resources, and decision-making power— and thus, their ability to contribute to climate change resilience. This brief presents key impacts and lessons drawn from various monitoring, evaluation, and learning methods implemented through the project. After a mixed-methods baseline quantitative household survey of 30 clusters randomly selected from 126 villages, including all six project villages, an independent endline survey evaluated households from three project villages regarding changes in natural resource management agricultural practices, and their well-being, among other things.

When food insecure households have to make decisions on how to use their limited resources, children’s schooling, especially girls’ access to education, often becomes a casualty. This brief report attempts to shed a light on the current global food insecurity status, its impact on children’s cognitive development, and some of CARE’s promising practices which are showing results in reducing the impact of food insecurity on education outcomes.

Ghana: Bringing the inputs one step closer to the farmers

August 15, 2022

Worldwide, the Ukraine conflict is leading to unparallel price hikes in food, fuel, and fertilizer. Like most countries in the world, Ghana is being impacted by these shocks.
