Project Description

With support from Uganda's Office of the Prime Minister and the German government, the World Food Programme (WFP) and International Lifeline Fund (ILF) implemented a SAFE project in Uganda from October 2018 to July 2019. Its goals were to improve livelihoods throughout the target communities by both reducing fuel costs and creating opportunities for local employment; develop community assets that can be leveraged for long-term economic growth; reduce biomass dependency to mitigate deforestation and conserve CO2 emissions; nurture markets for affordable energy efficient household stove technologies in Karamoja, West Nile, and South West regions of Uganda; and utilize stove training sessions as opportunities to provide refugee women with psychosocial support.
