The Climate Change, Agriculture and Poverty Alleviation (CCAP) initiative is a partnership between five civil society organisations with a commitment to improving accountability and with specific experience in agriculture (ActionAid Tanzania and Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement) and REDD (TFCG) working with grass-root networks of farmers (MVIWATA) and communities engaged in participatory forest management (MJUMITA). The initiative is an innovative partnership that will bridge the gap between NGOs more traditionally focused on forest conservation and those working on agricultural issues. The initiative aims to steer Tanzania towards an agricultural development pathway that achieves the dual goals of poverty reduction and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
