    The overall objective of this research is to understand how supported NAMAs could contribute to sustainable development and transformational changes in the sociotechnical systems in Tanzania. Specifically, the study intends to assess the practicability of NAMAs towards domestic policies which aim to alleviate poverty and achieve sustainable development through deployment of solar energy technologies. Given the special circumstances of the country, which is categorized by the UN as an LDC (UNCTAD, 2013), the focus will be on supported NAMAs as they likely to be the potential choice of NAMAs for Tanzania taking into account the poor economic situation.
