GIZ Tanzania supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. Tanzania protects some of the largest and most important ecosystems in the world. They are highly relevant for the conservation of global biodiversity, large wildlife populations and recovery of small, isolated wildlife populations. In recent years, human-wildlife conflicts (HWC) have become a serious problem. In the face of a rapidly growing human population, demand for land and natural resources for livestock, agriculture, and infrastructure has increased.
Most of historically viable wildlife corridors, migratory routes, dispersal areas and buffer zones have been encroached. This has led to a higher exposure of people and their livelihoods to wildlife damages. In the fringes of protected areas and wildlife corridors, there has been a sharp increase in property damages and personal injuries from wildlife, e.g. in the Ruvuma Landscape making these areas HWC hotspots. The joint Tanzanian-German cooperation project “Mitigation of Human-Wildlife Conflicts in Tanzania “aims to improve the management of HWC by key actors.
