More than 600 families are expected to benefit from a new solar power project supported by the UN in Tanzania.

The US$150,000 project, which is centred around the capital, Dodoma aims to help local communities mitigate the effects of climate change.

The UN Development Programme (UNDP) helped to launch the initiative, which includes innovative energy solutions, as well as new land and water use technologies.

Assumpta Massoi spoke to the UN country representative in Tanzania, Alvaro Rodriguez and asked him what the project aims to accomplish.
