dc.description.abstract Abstract This paper examines vulnerability to climate change and its sources in Tanzania. The paper discusses the predicted changes in climate and climate change impacts, arguing that food production, land cover changes and human health require the closest attention in vulnerability analyses. The paper then suggests that human capital, technological alternatives, levels and sources of income, inequality, and social capital and quality of institutions are important sources of vulnerability. The paper analyses these sources vulnerability in the context of Tanzania, placing a special emphasis on the role social capital and quality of institutions. The paper concludes by underlining the importance of adopting a broad-based approach to vulnerability and adaptation that acknowledges issues such as water supply, energy supply, nutrition and health of rural and urban households, in addition to their production-related activities and their access to commodity, capital and insurance markets en_GB
