    The main goal of FAO’s Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme is to facilitate the contribution of developing countries to the mitigation of climate change in agriculture and supporting them towards adopting low‐carbon emission agriculture. The Programme also supports FAO’s primary objective of improving food security, nutrition and agricultural productivity. In the United Republic of Tanzania, the MICCA Programme is cooperating with CARE International and the World Agrofo restry Centre (ICRAF) within the framework of CARE’s Hillside Conservation Agriculture Project (HICAP). The objective of the cooperation is to broaden the perspective of the project, which currently focuses on conservation agriculture (CA), to include climate change mitigation. The objective of the socio‐economic survey is to collect data on livelihoods, agricultural practices and climate change awareness among small‐holder farmers in the project areas. The survey design can be utilized later or adjusted so that it can serve as a tool to evaluate the outcomes and impacts on the socio‐economic situation of activities from other MICCA Programme activities in such areas as capacity development and greenhouse gas assessment. The survey was carried out in the Uluguru Hills. Data was collected in five villages that are representative of the terrain and population, with a total of 333 farmers interviewed. At least two focus group discussions were conducted in each village. The team is aware o f possible interviewer effects and other factors that may affect the validity and reliability of data. At several points, it is emphasized that the findings should be treated carefully and considered as estimates rather than hard data. The percentage of HICAP participants in the sample is quite low (17.4 percent). Farmers are involved in several activities simultaneously and most participate in groups, such as Farmer Field Schools (FFS) or VSL (Village Saving and Loans). Through these groups, fa rmers have access to specific services and training opportunities provided by HICAP.
