Endangered Ecosystems - Northern Tanzania (EENT) is a Cooperative Agreement (AID-621-A-15-00004) funded by USAID/Tanzania. The project focuses on protecting rangeland habitat for people and wildlife in northern Tanzania. EENT is entering a new phase in July 2018, with a focus on (1) joint visioning, exchange of lessons, and planning of multiple organizations, communities, and institutions through a stakeholders’ forum on healthy, connected rangelands, (2) harmonizing land use planning across village boundaries for rangelands connectivity in key wildlife corridors, (3) piloting systems for community-based, holistic rangeland management, restoration, and monitoring, and (4) improved collaboration and communications of multiple organizations through a partnership called the Northern Tanzania Rangelands Initiative (www.ntri.co.tz).
You will be a valued team member of a complex, multi-stakeholder project that advances the quality and connectivity of rangelands in Northern Tanzania through improved coordination, learning, and communication of multiple stakeholders on the landscape.
