This project is located in the urban and peri-urban areas of the northern and eastern regions of Uganda, where most families still cook with inefficient traditional stoves that consume large quantities of wood-based fuel.

The use of inefficient stoves contributes to a dramatic increase in the rate of deforestation and land degradation, and their use is a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In addition to the environmental impacts, traditional cooking methods also have serious negative implications on the health of community members most exposed to cooking fumes.

The distribution of the efficient stoves started in March 2021 and aims to reach a distribution of over 20,000 stoves.

In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to climate change mitigation in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, project activities contribute to the social and economic well-being of local communities.
