It is against this background that Joint Energy and Environment projects partnered with FAO Uganda (LOA 056/10) under a project titled Gender based violence prevention, social economic response and coordination in North Uganda (OSRO/UGA/004/UNJ) to train participants in construction of energy saving stoves and tree planting in Usuk and Toroma sub counties of Katakwi District.
Some of the key aspects to be addressed in the project include the following
- Labour saving technologies that focus on addressing gender practical needs
- Reducing indoor air pollution and fire accidents especially in house holds
- Saving valuable time that could be invested in other livelihood activities
