Whole Village Project
The Whole Village Project aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the health, prosperity, education and natural resource consumption of rural Tanzanians in East Africa.
The WVP team will assess these practices in 240 villages; empower villagers to make improvements; check back every two years to document changes; and share the results with local people so they can sustain any improvements. The information will also be made available to conservation NGOs and economic development and government agencies, serving as a common language that allows communities to share best practices.
The IonE Discovery Grant will support the researchers as they map land-use patterns, creating a baseline against which to measure progress.
