Mitigation actions

Using energy saving stoves in School
Energy saving stove project was initiated in 2008 with the objectives of minimizing costs of cooking materials, reducing defforestation and carbon emissions. The project was financed by DANIDA, Moshi Municipal Council, Urban and Environment development Fund and UNDP. Feasibility study was carried out in 2008 and implementation commenced in 2010. Beneficiaries of this projects are pupils, students, teachers and the communities at large.Advantages of this project , among other things, include reduced volume of fire woods by using bricks made from saw dusts, the time used for fetching fire wood, carbon emissions. Not only that but also the project has a spillover effect to the communities. Start year 2010

Improvement of solid waste management
Proper solid waste Managenment can reduce crude dumpsites which encourage improper waste burning at household level and hence reduce CO2 emissions. Also good landfill design and management will allow methane gas to be trapped and used as source of energy instead of exploding and cause fire. Start year 2014

CBD Re-development
The preparation of Central Area Re-development Plan will enable the proper land use location with the required pattern of apartment of blocks zoning. Hence plot coverage and plot ratio will properly be planned for buildings to have have land uses like Residential, Commercial and Office premises. High rise building will mean proper use of space vertically rather than horizontally. Bigger population will live in a small compact area hence use of more road space within shorter distance in the Central Business Development (CBD) area. Trees planting will help in absorbing gases emission. Start year 2014

Construction of feeder Roads to reduce congestion
Construction of Feeder roads will on one hand gradually increase the life span of the urban roads and on the other hand it will encourage people to use bicycles.Since this is part of the larger plan to construct all the feeder roads so that it will help in decongesting the city, providing bicycle lane space and thus reducing urban polution. This is currently in the strategic plan but to be implemented requires funding Start year 2014
