Tanzania’s largest city, Dar es Salaam, is a coastal metropolis prone to flooding. Already, sections of the 2.6-km sea wall that protects this major commercial, administrative and industrial center are severely degraded or completely destroyed. Inadequate drainage systems exacerbate urban flooding during the rainy season, often resulting in traffic jams, and health hazards from water-borne pollution. Climate change is expected to worsen the threat to key infrastructure in Dar es Salaam.

The project intends to lessen the negative impacts of sea level rise and changes in precipitation patterns in the Ilala and Temeke Districts of Dar es Salaam. The project aims to reduce the adverse impacts of sea level rise and floods on coastal infrastructures and settlements; rehabilitate coastal ecosystems to enhance ecological resistance to flooding; conduct a baseline study based on coastal vulnerability and an assessment of the economic viability and practical feasibility of adaptation measures; creating and operating a climate change observatory for Tanzania; documenting lessons learned, building district level administration capacity; and producing an Ecosystem-based Integrated Coastal Area Management Plan.
