Abstract: "Low-income, largely rural and highly vulnerable to climate change: Tanzania’s profile reveals a country facing a major climate challenge. Despite this sprawling sub-Saharan country’s massive natural riches – from the Serengeti to gold, diamonds and natural gas – poverty is endemic, spanning pastoralists to small-scale farmers, and rural to urban. Tanzania suffers from data poverty too. But building up an accurate picture of the country’s economic vulnerability to climate change is key if policy is to be directed at reducing risks and exposure. A look at the available data and insights offers a starting point."
