A renewable energy project in Newala District by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF Tanzania) in partnership with a Mtwara-based civil society organisation (CSO). The project is being implemented at Miyuyu Village, and is bringing hopes of reversing the fortunes of Mbwinji Catchment Area and protects it from drying up, contributing to climate change mitigation.
Miyuyu is one of the four villages selected to become renewable energy village models under a WWF project whose objective is to ensure renewable solutions meet all energy needs by 2050. The other villages are Mabilioni (Northern Zone), Pandagichiza (Lake Zone) and Mkungugu (Southern Zone).
According to WWF’s Energy and Extractive Programme coordinator Savinus Kessy, the project aims at ensuring increased capacity and engagement of the civil societies and a sustainable energy transition in the country as part of a larger sustainable energy transition in eastern and southern Africa.
