NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Projects: Africa

The project intends to develop, test and pioneer a concept in Tanzania, which addresses the current challenges of water point management and lack of off-grid renewable energy.
The objective of the proposal is to mainstream climate and disaster risk management in African countries’ strategies, policies and investments in order to enable countries to meet the demand to reduce the vulnerability of their own people, assets, livelihoods and economies to climate and disaster-related risks.
The objective of ClimDev Special Fund (CDSF) is to strengthen the institutional capacities of African national and sub-regional bodies to formulate and implement effective climate-sensitive policies by providing up-to-date information to support related activities.

The aim of this project is to establish a medium-scale business by constructing a biogas and fertiliser plant, which will help reduce negative environmental impacts and cut the costs faced by public latrines.
