Integrated Planning -- Tanzania and Zambia

Climate Change SummaryMost of Tanzania’s threats to biodiversity and the environment are an outcome of land use practices.

  • Tanzania is positively contributing to the implementation of the CBD, and the Aichi targets 7 and 11 in particular.

  • Mainstream land use planning laws in Tanzania have general provisions on integrating climate change and biodiversity issues into spatial planning frameworks, while sectoral policies and laws have more elaborate provisions.

Strategic plans, action plans, guidelines and programmes show the extent to which Tanzania is striving to attain Aichi targets 7 and 1.
