Project Description

In early 2011, the International Lifeline Fund (ILF) Rural Fuel Efficient Stove (FES) Programme worked closely with World Food Programme (WFP) in Uganda to develop a joint-venture project under the Northern Uganda Early Recovery Project (NUREP). This project was to run alongside afforestation activities in selected Sub-Counties of Lira, Otuke, Alebtong and Oyam Districts. As the advocacy, training, and planting of more trees outputs were carried out by WFP, ILF’s planned activities complimented the project efforts to conserve and protect the environment, help mitigate deforestation and to address the larger security concern of environmental degradation in Northern Uganda. The project has several objectives including: (1) generate environmental awareness; 2) conduct School Day Environment Awareness campaigns; (3) stove construction demonstration and distribution in identified communities; (4) production and distribution of stove bricks; (5) training of trainers for stove construction. There was high satisfaction feedback from end-users. They reported rapid adoption of the new stoves and demand for a second stove, leading ILF to establish a rural stove market in the region to meet a growing demand for fuel-efficient stoves in rural communities
