Agriculture is the predominant economic sector in Kigoma Region with over 85% of the total population of the region depend on agriculture for its livelihood.

Despite fertile lands, most families can only afford two meals a day low in quantity and nutrition and malnutrition in children under age five is significantly higher than the national average.

Through this theme, the UN will increase the capacity of smallholder farmers and strengthen their resolve to combat the effects of climate change. Farmers will also gain improved knowledge on post-harvest handling of crops and how to access markets and financing for their goods.
