Opportunities for Low Carbon Investment in Tanzania ‐ an Assessment of Future Emissions Growth and Low Carbon Reduction Potential
Global Climate Adaptation Partnership, Stockholm Environment Institute, UKAID, 2010by: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland This report focuses on the potential for low carbon opportunities and the financing that could flow from such projects. Tanzania needs additional investment to facilitate growth that is more sustainable than the current pathway. This could be achieved through using financing mechanisms that provide funding for projects and programmes where greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions can be demonstrated. In addition to reducing carbon, many of these options could lead to more sustainable growth through protecting natural resources, improving environmental quality, delivering economic opportunities and reducing reliance on fossil imports.
