Green Voices Tanzania Works to Combat Gender Inequalities and Climate Change

Lack of capacity to adapt and mitigate effects of climate change has led to continued climate vulnerability and high levels of poverty with women being mostly affected, the Vice-President, Ms Samia Suluhu Hassan, observed yesterday.

"We all witness of how the African continent is losing billions of dollars due to climate change and variability; the loss is not only in reduction of crop yields but also increased water shortages," the VP made the observation during the launch of Green Voices Tanzania.

Green Voices Tanzania is a one-year pilot project funded by Women for Africa Foundation, through its President, Ms Maria Teresa de la Vega, who is the former Deputy Prime Minister of Spain.
