Tanzania is one of the pilot countries selected to benefit from the Scaling-Up Renewable Energy Programing Low Income Countries (SREP). SREP operates under the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF), which is part of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF). The objective of the SREP is to pilot and demonstrate the economic, social and environmental viability of low carbon development pathways in the energy sector by creating new economic opportunities and increasing energy access through the use of renewable energy. Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) provide support to Governments in preparing and implementing their SREP Investment Plan. In the case of the SREP Tanzania, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank Group (WBG), including the International Finance Corporation (IFC), jointly provide support to the Government, with the African Development Bank (AfDB) acting as the lead institution.
