The International Livestock Research Institute has launched the second phase of its Enabling a resilient and prosperous community through participatory agroecological practices in the semi-arid region of central Tanzania project (ResComm II).

Aiming to improve food and nutritional security using community-based agroecological approaches, the project is being integrated into Tanzania government initiatives.

Dodoma Region, where the project is based, is heavily reliant on agriculture and food security is one of the primary goals of Tanzania’s Development Vision 2020–25.

ResComm II will work with farmers, researchers, government and private sector experts to transform agriculture and promote sustainable landscape management.

The project will be implemented in eight villages in Kongwa District and three villages in Mpwapwa District, and will run from 2024 to 2026.
