A Collaborative Initiative between UK FCDO and Omdena
Protecting Mangroves in Tanzania’s Rufiji Delta
Together, we have developed innovative solutions to monitor and analyze deforestation in Tanzania’s mangroves, specifically in the Rufiji Delta region.
Tanzania faces a critical issue with deforestation, contributing over 70% of its greenhouse gas emissions. This poses global and local consequences, affecting climate, biodiversity, and socio-economic factors. The Rufiji delta, with its mangrove forests, is particularly challenging to monitor due to its vastness and dense vegetation.
Our project aimed to address the critical issue of deforestation in Tanzania’s mangroves, which poses a significant threat to the delicate ecosystem and biodiversity of the Rufiji Delta. By leveraging advanced technology and data analysis techniques, we sought to provide actionable insights and support sustainable management practices.
Our solution offers the following key features:
Utilizing satellite imagery and remote sensing techniques, we continuously monitor the Rufiji Delta to detect and alert authorities of any potential deforestation activities promptly.
Through advanced algorithms and machine learning models, we analyze large volumes of data to identify patterns, hotspots, and potential causes of deforestation.
We have developed an intuitive and user-friendly dashboard that provides visualizations and actionable insights based on the analyzed data. This empowers stakeholders to make informed decisions and take appropriate actions.
Our project involved close collaboration with local communities, conservation organizations, and government agencies. By working together, we aim to create a sustainable framework for preserving Tanzania’s mangroves.
