Oikos East Africa is collaborating with Istituto Oikos for the implementation of a sub-grant under the EENT project, led by The Nature Conservancy.
In 2015, USAID launched the Endangered Ecosystems in Northern Tanzania initiative, to further support and secure the long term conservation and resilience of this unique landscape. The NTRI-EENT Project is a 5-year project funded by USAID through its Tanzania mission; it began on September 11, 2015, and will end on September 10, 2020. It is implemented by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) through its Northern Tanzania Program based in Arusha, with eight other partners in a consortium: Honeyguide, Maliasili Initiatives, Oikos, Pathfinder International, Tanzania People & Wildlife Fund, Ujamaa Community Resource Team, Wildlife Conservation Society, and Carbon Tanzania.
The Project’s goal is “to secure an ecologically and economically thriving landscape that supports both people and wildlife, and is resilient to future stress from climate change and human population growth”.
