Green and Inclusive Energy (GIE)

 

The Green and Inclusive Energy partnership was a HIVOs’ five years strategic partnership programme that focused on setting the ground through soliciting information, stakeholders’ mobilization, initiating lobbying, advocacy activities, and Influencing public and political debate on energy, with the ultimate aim of transitioning toward greener and more inclusive energy systems. 

Some of the activities implemented under this project were part of contributing to the Accountable Climate Action and Transparency Initiative (ACATI) program that is co-funded by the European Union. 

Under this project, FORUMCC developed a study report on the “Advocacy Strategies on Investment and Accountability of Decentralized Renewable Energy in Tanzania” to advocate for increased government accountability on climate finance for decentralized renewable energy and enhance the capacity of CSOs and their effectiveness in strategically engaging various governmental, private sector/investors and communities at national and feeding into continental levels. 

 

FORUMCC organized a Stakeholders’ Consultation Dialogue Sessions with renewable energy stakeholders at Courtyard Hotel, Dar es Salaam on Monday 23rd September 2019. 33 participants of which 13 were females and 20 were males attended the session. The participants were from private sectors working on renewable, civil society organization, companies, government, innovators and media to solicit inputs and comments for improvement of the study report and provide platform for stakeholders’ discussion on decentralized energy. The study draft report of the paper was used as the basis of discussion for the session. Inputs, comments and recommendations were provided and then later given to consultant to be incorporated in the final report and the final report that was used as one of the advocacy tools. The session also offered a platform for stakeholders’ discussion on decentralized renewable energy in general.

 

A total of 132 women from 4 groups trained to produce hand wash soap, face masks and manufacturing alternative charcoal using domestic wastes. The intervention focused on rehabilitating women declined traditional entrepreneurship activities as affected by COVID 19 responses, but also taking advantage of the pandemic to generate income. To the moment trained women and youth (Madale and Tabata in Dar-es-salaam) are running the same business on their own with success. This initiative was supported by HIVOs 2017-2020 and European Union (EU) under ACATI project 2018-2020.

 

FORUMCC conducted Stakeholders’ learning alliance sessions, one on the 6th of July 2019 at Sabasaba grounds during the 43rd Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair.

 

The session brought together 151 actors (71 female and 80 male). The actors came from private sectors, government, government agencies, academic institutions, CSOs, individual innovators of renewable energy, and some of the SP-E partners. The session enabled some renewable energy actors to present and illustrate their works and also had an area for exhibitions. The actors that came to this day we’re able to see other works and share experiences through these presentations and exhibitions, but also learn and get informed on areas of policies, regulations, and investment opportunities and information on the Decentralized Renewable energy sector. This session enabled FORUMCC to identify key actors in Decentralized renewable energy and women actors in the sector who can provide the initial contacts towards forming the Learning Alliance and Women Caucus.

 

A voluntary alliance of 20 CSOs was established and named as Dar es Salaam Stakeholders learning alliance, on the 26th October 2019 during the session that brought together 39 participants Dodoma, Singida, and Dar es Salaam. The alliance was formed with the aim of capacity building, sector strengthening, and decision support, improving collaboration among different stakeholders, joint planning and decision-making and improving transparency and accountability.

 

In the efforts of building a women’s caucus, FORUMCC has conducted a number of mobilization sessions and plans to conduct more sessions with relevant groups of women with an aim of building a caucus that will be dynamic and representative of the various groups of women who will push the Green and Inclusive energy agenda.

 

The first the women mobilization activity was organized by FORUMCC and took part at the annual TGNP gender festival on 25th September 2019 during the gender festival event in Mabibo Dar es Salaam. FORUMCC ran sessions under the category of “Movement building for environmental justice and climate change” under the theme Gender mainstreaming and accelerating clean energy and climate action. The session brought together one hundred and fifty-two (152) representatives of which 117 were female and 35 were men from civil society organizations, government, development partners, and academic institutions from across the country. Through this platform, women got the opportunity to learn from each other and discuss the renewable energy and opportunities found in renewable energy, climate change, and its adaptation and mitigation measures.

 

On the 22nd October 2019, FORUMCC conducted a Pre-COP 25 session in Dar es Salaam whereby, 45 participants from Academic institutions, CSOs, Government institution (NEMC), Ministry of Forestry, and RE actors in Tanzania attended and developed a CSOs National Climate Change Position paper in which we were also invited to give inputs in the EAC position paper (presenting the position paper to East Africa Legislative body and African Ministerial Conference on the Environment (AMCEN) and Tanzania Delegation position paper with the aim of guiding the National Delegation in negotiations during UNFCCC COP25 which was held from 2nd-15th December 2019 in Madrid, Spain.
