Climate change and the water–energy–food nexus: insights from policy and practice in Tanzania

Climate change and the water–energy–food nexus: insights from policy and practice in Tanzania

a research article by Joanna Pardoe, Declan Conway, Emilinah Namaganda, Katharine Vincent, Andrew J. Dougill, Japhet J. Kashaigili  6 December, 2017

Using document analysis and key informant interviews, this article examines how climate change is addressed in policy, how it is being mainstreamed into water, energy and agriculture sector policies and the extent to which cross-sectoral linkages enable coordinated action. These questions are addressed through a case study of Tanzania, highlighting broader lessons for other developing countries, particularly those in SSA facing similar challenges. read more »
