Human-Wildlife Conflict Management Job at GIZ – Nafasi za kazi GIZ Ajira
(HWC) programme in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. As a federal enterprise, GIZ 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. In recent years, humanwildlife conflicts (HWC) have become a serious problem. In the face of a rapidly growing population, demand for land and natural resources for livestock, agriculture, and infrastructure has increased. This has led to a higher exposure of people and their livelihoods to wildlife damage. Especially in the fringes of protected areas and wildlife corridors, there has been a sharp increase in property damage and personal injury from wildlife,
e.g. in the Ruvuma Landscape. The joint Tanzanian-German cooperation project “Mitigation of Human-Wildlife Conflicts in Tanzania “aims to improve the management of HWC by key actors in Tanzania.
The HWC project forms part of the Tanzanian – German cooperation on biodiversity protection and sustainable use of natural resources. GIZ is coordinating several initiatives related to this programme.
