Distribution of responsibilities in more than one Government ministry for climate financeĀ  from different sources is essential. Without a strong and decentralized mechanism for climate change finance, the current situation will exist and continue affecting the available and upcoming strategy directives to local bodies for the purpose of providing appropriate oversight.

So far, as collective responsibility is considered at project implementation, it is high time for mult-sectral engagement in all steps for climate finance access, allocation, expenditure and feedback. Tanzania should also learn from the gaps and lacks of other countries and adopt a specific coding for climate change expenditures. Information dissemination and transparency can only be guaranteed by a clear coding system and the detailed document determining the relevance of climate change projects and expenses. Decentralization of climate finance access is also important. Like what Kenya has done, policy changes and review on available strategies and plans in Tanzania, should be conducted for the overall coherence of the national climate finance access to enable local communities to plan, budget and to directly access climate funds from different sources while great attention given to vulnerable communities

To make this happen, different roles should be played with different stakeholders

  1. Which stakeholders do you think fits to take this initiatives forward?
  2. Which effective approach should be used to make these efforts rolling to achieve a decentralized climate Finance mechanism in Tanzania
