Description / Abstract

This Plan aims at making the Tanzanian health system resilient to climate change, by mainstreaming adaptation efforts into health policies. It focuses on vector-borne diseases, nutrition, water-related diseases and disasters (flood and drought frequency). The Plan sets a long-term target and a five-year implementation strategy. The Plan also seeks to 1) guide health practitioners on the need to develop and operationalise a climate-sensitive early warning system for diseases outbreaks, 2) advocate for the mobilisation and allocation of resources for adaptation to climate change in the health sector, and 3) facilitate the integration of health priorities into the National Adaptation Plan and support the NDC implementation process.
