Eco-Agric Uganda works towards contributing to the attainment of the Government of Uganda's overall Policy Goal of increasing the use of modern renewable energy, from the current 4% to 61% of the total energy consumption. This aims to address poverty, catalyzing industrialization and protecting the environment.
Eco-Agric Uganda works to sustainably facilitate access to clean energy to rural poor people in Uganda through the following contributions: increasing access to improved cookstoves for 1,800,000 rural poor people in Uganda; increasing accessibility of small scale energy for lighting/electrical applications for 670,000 in rural poor areas of Uganda; support for the construction and use of 10,000,000 energy saving cookstoves among rural poor vulnerable communities and 5,000,000 cookstoves in schools and institutions; and promote modern energy services for 3000 social institutions and 1200 small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Eco-Agric Uganda promotes clean energy for cooking as well as modern energy for lighting and electric household appliances. This is done through the rural partner synergy approach and the private sector development approach.
These approaches are used to extend far beyond the energy sector, such as poverty eradication, access to clean water, improved public health and education, women's empowerment, and increased food production.
While promoting energy conservation services, tree planting and natural resource management are at the forefront.
