In 2016, CAN-Tanzania (CAN-TZ), the World Future Council (WFC) and Bread for the World (BftW) embarked on an 18-month project in Tanzania to develop a coherent strategy to implement 100 per cent Renewable Energy (RE) as part of the country’s Sustainable Low Carbon Development (LCD) Initiatives and Poverty Reduction Goals. This project builds on the previous experience of the project partners in facilitating the deployment of LCD and RE in Tanzania.
Through an inclusive and interactive approach engaging local stakeholders and key decision makers in the energy transformation and poverty reduction process, this project intends to:
• inspire stakeholders and build hands-on knowledge of how 100 per cent RE adds value to local economic development and community sustainability
• strengthen synergies, networks and platforms for multi-stakeholder dialogue and follow-up at the national level among government, parliamentary committees, policy-makers, civil society, trade unions, churches and media on LCD, poverty reduction and 100 per cent RE
• identify necessary legislation and policy reforms.
