With climate change models in Tanzania predicting an increase in annual average temperatures, and less reliable rainfall with longer and hotter dry seasons, farmers are turning their attention to climate change adaptation measures and growing crops in places that were once untenable. In the past, black pepper would never have flourished in mountainous areas, growing typically in hot and humid regions, but due to gradual increases in temperature, the spice is thriving at higher altitudes in Tanzania, such as in the East Usambara mountains in north-east Tanzania. Villagers taking part in the Integrated Approaches for Climate Change Adaptation in the East Usambara Mountains project, one of five initiatives, which falls under the EU funded Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) in Tanzania, are taking advantage of this new phenomenon and planting black pepper is becoming more and more common.
