Her Resilience, Our Planet project funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) aims to increase the socio-economic empowerment of women and female youth in gender responsive and ecosystem-sensitive agricultural sectors in five districts of two SAGCOT’s geographic priority clusters: Ihemi cluster (Iringa, Kilolo, Mufindi and Wanging’ombe districts) and Mbarali cluster (Mbarali district).

The 6-year Her Resilience, Our Planet (HROP) project will enhance the adoption of gender-responsive Climate-Smart Agriculture systems, biodiversity protective food systems for nature, and positive climate change adaptation by food insecure communities, especially women and youth.

The project will be implemented by a consortium of six organizations: CARE, WWF and four local implementing partners:
SAGCOT Centre Ltd (SCL), Tanzania Gender Networking Program (TGNP), Shahidi Wa Maji (SwM) and Conservation Farming Unit Tanzania (CFU-Tanzania) offering decades of experience in women’s leadership, climate change adaptation and ecosystem conservation.
