Taking place in Chololo Village, Dodoma, Tanzania, the project was developed with local and national partners. Farmers were trained in climate-smart practices and were encouraged to report on which systems were most effective in order to inform decision making. The community’s adaptive capacity was increased through improving resource access and efficiency via solar panels, rainwater collection and storage, and biogas digesters. Longevity of project implementation, and improved economic development was supported through skill building programs. Chololo village is an excellent example of successful participatory planning in improving agricultural productivity and energy efficiency whilst simultaneously reframing Chololo as an eco-village.
