Coordinator Job Placement - Uganda National Alliance on Clean Cooking (UNACC)

Uganda has a population of 31 million people with 87% living in rural areas and relying almost exclusively (96%) on biomass for cooking. 90% of them do not have an improved cook stove or clean fuel, which means they suffer from indoor air pollution, spend many hours of the day looking for fuels, and have high expenses in fuel costs.

To target these deficits, in 2007, the Government of Uganda developed the Renewable Energy Policy, which aimed to increase the use of modern renewable energy from 6% to 61% by 2020. This policy highlights the need for mass adoption of improved cook stoves and clean fuels to reduce demand for biomass energy resources. The Government is also developing a Biomass Energy Strategy (BEST) with a focus on increasing use of efficient biomass energy technologies.
