Video: Urban Agriculture in Dar es Salaam

We are pleased to feature a wonderful video written and produced by Tanya Hubbard, one of our recent SCI interns.  Filmed, directed and edited by Shaine Jones, this is a visual story that highlights the impact and importance of urban agriculture in Dar es Salaam, and also looks at the work facilitated by the SCI interns.

A key achievement for us in Dar was that Morgen Zivhave (SCI’s Local Program Coordinator) and our team of interns essentially led the process of protecting space for urban agriculture in the city through the formal Master Planning process (and then facilitated establishing a group of local farmers in one of the new protected areas) as a pilot for the other municipalities to follow. They also helped set up a network for local farmers to exchange info and expertise, modeled after similar networks in Nairobi and Durban, whose work we were able to share with each other through our SCI Peer Exchanges.
