Some of East Africa's most traditional pastoralist and hunter-gatherer communities are currently at great risk of loosing their land and resources due to progressive land encroachment and lack of representation in modern Tanzania. 



​UCRT works to empower marginalised people in the rangelands of northern Tanzania to secure rights to their natural resources and land. 



UCRT helps these communities by representing their land rights, advocating on their behalf to local and national government, and  securing legal ownership of their traditional lands.



We also help empower these communities to independently and effectively manage their land and resources, and to improve education, women's protection and advocacy, as well as their leadership and representation among the wider Tanzanian community.

This paper presents several case studies to show how the Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT) has been working within Tanzania’s legal and policy framework to support a diverse range of pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and hunter-gatherers, all of whom face fundamental threats from external appropriation of, or encroachment on, lands and natural resources. The work also responds to local needs to rationalise resource use rights amongst competing local groups, such as farmers and livestock keepers.

The Hadzabe community of the Yaida Valley requested UCRT to assist them to undertake a cultural mapping exercise.

Project
Geographical focus: 

The project secured collective land rights for surviving Hadzabe hunter–gatherer and Datoga pastoralist groups, and  improved  the governance of village lands in 11 neighbouring village areas in the Yaeda-Mangola area, east of Lake Eyasi, in Northern Tanzania, which forms an important wildlife and mobile human land use corridor.
