DAMAX Solutions Embarks on Groundbreaking Socioeconomic and Gender Survey for USAID Heshimu Bahari Project

As we near the completion of our data collection efforts, DAMAX Solutions, under contract with the USAID Heshimu Bahari Project, is on the cusp of initiating a pivotal socioeconomic and gender survey. This endeavor seeks to unlock crucial insights into the ecological and economic dynamics of six out of twelve seascapes along the East coast of Tanzania. The data gleaned from this survey will play a pivotal role in shaping informed decisions and facilitating the formulation of effective policies and strategies for long-term marine conservation and community development.

Key Geographic Areas Under Focus:
Tanga: Encompassing Tanga municipality, Pangani, and Mkinga.
Pwani: Focusing on Bagamoyo.
Dar es Salaam: Including areas neighboring the Dar es Salaam Marine Reserves.
Mafia-Kilwa Seascape: A critical area for marine conservation.
Mnazi Bay-Ruvuma Seascape: An ecologically significant region.


Empowering Communities through Strategic Interventions:
Our emphasis extends beyond traditional conservation approaches. DAMAX Solutions is committed to identifying and implementing community alternative livelihood projects, with a particular focus on empowering vulnerable groups, especially women and youths. By tailoring interventions to address the unique needs of these communities, we aim to create sustainable pathways for socioeconomic development.

A Vision for the Future:
The data collected through this survey will not merely be a compilation of statistics; it will serve as the bedrock for developing the Heshimu Bahari Activity intervention strategy. This strategy, informed by real-world insights, will guide our future initiatives in marine conservation and community development. As we navigate these vital seascapes, DAMAX Solutions remains dedicated to fostering a harmonious balance between ecological preservation and the well-being of local communities.

In collaboration with USAID Heshimu Bahari Project team, our mission is to catalyze positive change, ensuring the sustainable use of marine resources and fostering resilient communities. Stay tuned as we embark on this transformative journey, paving the way for a future where both the environment and its inhabitants thrive in tandem.
