Tanzania, located in East Africa, is defined by the Great Riff Valley, which runs from north to south, encompassing vast plains, plateaus, and highlands. To the east lies the coastal region along the Indian Ocean, featuring tropical lowlands and offshore islands. Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, shapes the northern landscape. Tanzania experiences a varied climate, including a coastal tropical climate with high temperatures and humidity, a dry and arid climate in the central plateau, and a cooler climate in the highland areas. The country has distinct wet and dry seasons, with the coastal belt receiving more rainfall than the country’s landlocked part. Tanzania is known for its rich biodiversity and various ecosystems which are continuously endangered by climate change induced temperature increases, changes in precipitation patterns, and an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as droughts and floods. Its reliance on rain-fed agriculture makes Tanzania particularly vulnerable these weather extremes.
