Tanzania is not an exception. Dar es Salaam is by far the largest city in the country which has already witnessed climate change and sea level rise impacts. The city is a hub of major commercial activities in the country, including tourist hotels, academic institutions, hospitals, beach clubs, schools, settlements, business offices, markets and fish landing sites located along the coast.
