EU, Stakeholders Widening Clean Cooking Energy Scope 

The EU has expressed intention to finance projects in the clean cooking energy programme with the clean energy fund located in the Ministry of Energy to help push current government efforts. The overall objective is to ensure that by 2034, more than 80 percent of Tanzanians will be using clean cooking fuel, abandoning charcoal and firewood. The energy project manager at the EU mission, Massimiliano Pedretti, made this pledge in Dar es Salaam yesterday, participating in a discussion of energy sector stakeholders, evaluating the direction of energy sector policy. UNDP Project Manager, Aaron Cunningham, said that UNDP decided to support the efforts by seeking policy initiatives for stakeholders to use improved electricity equipment.
