The programme aims to improve food security and increase incomes among 460,840 households in the areas of Manyara, Tanga, Pemba, Unguja, Dodoma and Singida. Specifically, the programme works to improve the livelihoods of the poorest agro-pastoralists and pastoralists. It strengthens the capacity of livestock communities and enhances the delivery of livestock development services to smallholders. Further it aims to improve marketing systems and infrastructure for livestock products and strengthen national and local government institutions to provide services to the livestock subsector. On land and natural resource governance, the programme stresses the importance of land-use planning particularly with respect to assuring tenure, resolution of conflicts over land and water among competing interest groups and the sustainability of the natural resource base. It adopts land-use plans which will establish clear land-use demarcation and protect and monitor water resources. The programme supports village land use planning and rangeland management through the Collaborative Initiative on Land Issues (CALI). The goal is that on the mainland at least 72 villages will have proper land-use plans.
