Clean Cooking Activities
Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH) as part of our mission, promotes the use of energy-saving cookstoves among the communities we work with and who live around protected areas in Uganda. In 2012, CTPH partnered with Ecolife Foundation to promote the benefits of clean cookstoves at the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park working with our Village Health and Conservation Team (VHCT) networks that conduct behavior change communication to every home in their village. Over 550 community members adopted Lorena and Masai energy-saving cookstoves, which were being promoted at the time. In 2016, CTPH joined ICSEA (Improved Cook Stoves for East Africa) managed by the Uganda Carbon Bureau (UCB), to make the promotion of clean cookstoves sustainable through earning carbon credits. CTPH has set up programs at the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve, Virunga National Park, and Mount Elgon National Park where we are implementing the same community based structure of VHCT or Conservation Community Animal Health workers. With funding, we plan to use the same structures to conduct behavior change communications and increase adoption of energy-saving cook stoves.
Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH) would like to develop a partnership with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves to have more access to technical expertise within the Alliance partner network and have a platform to learn from other partners and share our experiences, lessons learned, and best practices. We would like to have access to other cookstove manufacturers to be able to give our communities that we work with different clean cookstoves options. For example UCB helped us to connect with the International Lifeline Fund whose wood stoves have been certified to earn carbon credits.
