NEWS FROM THE WFC IN OCTOBER
img
Dear Friends & Supporters,

Sustainable development can only be reached when it is supported by the people and is enabled by an appropriate policy framework. This month, we have put a focus on Tanzania where through our work, African and international decision-makers get insights into smart, future-just policy making:

Strengthening the rights of the children, especially in developing countries, is the aim of our upcoming conference in Zanzibar. Earlier this month, we and our partners published a study during a high-level conference in Daressalaam, proving that 100% renewable energy is the cheapest option for Tanzania to become a middle-income country by 2050: two test cases that can be applied to other developing countries.
