Study climate change, its human impacts, and national and local solutions in northern and coastal Tanzania.
WHY STUDY CLIMATE CHANGE IN TANZANIA?
Tanzania’s diverse ecology provides an extraordinary backdrop in which to explore climate change. In the interior mountains, study tropical forest management and examine the climatology, ecology, and hydrology of the extinct volcano in Kilimanjaro National Park, including its two glaciers. In Ngorongoro Conservation Area, visit the largest intact collapsed volcano outside Indonesia, and investigate how climate change affects migrating wildlife such as zebras and wildebeests. In Zanzibar, you’ll learn about coral reef conservation. Throughout your journey, you’ll also consider solutions to issues posed by climate change, meeting with farmers, foresters, fishermen, community leaders, and nongovernmental organizations. In addition to learning from SIT’s world-class faculty, you also will speak with experts through SIT’s extensive regional networks, including government departments in Zanzibar the Institute of Marine Sciences in Zanzibar, and College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka, in Moshi.
