The project will empower the major Higher Education Institutions in Tanzania to meet the targets specified in their academic development strategies for conservation.


Develop an e-learning platform which will address the gaps in the current HE offer. Thanks to it, new courses will be quickly integrated into the existing curricula. The teaching will be enabled by the dotation of a set of PCs to ensure a minimum standard of IT infrastructure is in place. To overcome problems such as shortage of institutional PCs and Internet failures, the platform can be ran in smart phones, and modules can be downloaded and used offline.


Organize workshops to bring together experts from EU partners and lecturers from Tanzanian HEIs to deliver targeted and face-to-face training based on specific needs assessment by each HEIs


Produce a toolkit as a printed document to assist training of trainers, students and professionals, as this tool was identified as a lacking document in the current literature and ensure that the e-learning modules are integrated into the teaching toolkit of trainers.


Develop and organize the first field courses at the field stations (Udzungwa Ecological Monitoring Centre and Nkweseko Scientific Station Kilimanjaro) co-managed by EU partners, based on their wide experience in field training and facilitate the participation and co-teaching by Tanzania’s HEIs lecturers and technicians in the field courses, to engage them into applied training.


Organizing a project closing-up scientific symposium with a traveling exhibit, representative of national level stakeholders along with project partners, to present achievements and share lessons. The scientific symposium will also be attended by a representation of students to expose them to the wider academic, Governmental and professional sectors.



Improved higher education offer of Tanzania’s HEIs in biodiversity science through the mainstreaming in their B.Sc. and M.Sc. curricula of state-of-the-art scientific knowledge for biodiversity assessment and monitoring


Updated knowledge, skills, reference material, and infrastructure of lecturers of Tanzania’s HEIs to deliver effective and field-based biodiversity monitoring training; updated practices and approaches to implement biodiversity monitoring aligned across HEIs’ staff and professionals from PAs and other relevant agencies


Improved capacities of students to apply on the ground the biodiversity knowledge and approaches acquired through R1, and strengthened the capacities of professionals to implement biodiversity monitoring according to national and international targets
