The Hadzabe community in Tanzania wins the international award for environmental conservation



The Hadzabe Tanzanian hunting community is expected to receive awards in New York for its efforts to tackle poverty through environmental conservation and sustainable livelihoods.

The community that lost 90% of their land to farmers and livestock farmers is being sold today in New York USA at the UN UNDP award for good forest management and climate change prevention.

The Equator Prize 2019 comes as the day after the UN's climate change conference, which urges national leaders to commit themselves to addressing climate change.

In cooperation with the social organization - Carbon Tanzania, they successfully coordinated the process of benefiting from the natural environment.

They approved a fee-for-service project for the burning of timber in the forests of their areas, an activity that contributes to the emission of carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide.

And it is the project that has now won them this year's Equator Prize.


Who are they?

The Hadzabe community is one of the remaining tribes in the world that promotes hunting activities, it is thought that this community has lived in northern Tanzania, eating fruits and roots, and various animal species for 40,000 years.

Although the Hadzabe are a small minority - about 1000 men, women and children, by 2017 it is believed that those who depend on hunting life alone are between 200 and 300, who do not farm or do any kind of farming.

This community views farmers as amazing.

What does this award mean to the Horsemen?

Marc Baker, founder of Carbon Tanzania, which runs forest conservation projects in various villages in Tanzania, explains that aside from this victory, the community supports the whole world in efforts to reduce the damage caused by climate change.

He explained that the agency helps by coordinating the purchase or payment of the Carbon Air, which after making payments to the Tanzanian carbon company sends money to the community.

After the money is distributed, 'The village gets a percentage, the community gets to use it to help people with education, hospitals and various things in the village' baker told BBC Swahili.

So far the project has benefited the community, which is very poor at more than $ 300,000 according to Carbon Tanzania.

One such leader is expected to receive the same award today in the US by the UNDP for projects or efforts in approving solutions to counter climate change and to promote sustainable development.
