Dialogue with Government of Tanzania
On 14 July 2020 TAREA with support of ENDEV III Program through SNV conducted a workshop that attracted biomass actors from the private and public sectors. Government authorities present were Ministry of Energy, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Centre for Agricultural Mechanization and Rural Technologies, Tanzania Forest Service Agency, Rural Energy Agency, Commission for Science and Technology, University of Dar es Salaam and Vice President Office.
The parties met to discuss the open question of which government authority is the lead of the biomass cooking technologies.
Parties noted that currently there is no local data about the impacts of using biomass energy cooking on the human health.
TAREA continues to coordinate the dialogue to get the two above issues answered.
