The Tanzanian project increases access to agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and seeds while fostering the adoption of improved seed varieties and nutrient practices among farmers in several districts of Tanzania. Evaluating the project with the EX-CAT appraisal method finds that the project's improved agricultural practices increase carbon sequestration but high fertilizer usage adds to carbon emissions. However, the project's net carbon balance is 20.5 Mt which means the project is a carbon sink. The project is therefore able to supply environmental services and contribute to climate change mitigation.
