WELCOME TO UNACC

UNACC is the perfect choice for your business.

UNACC is a result of a comprehensive review of contemporary developments in policies, practices, and technologies, as well as consultations with major stakeholders in the energy sector.

The major observations include the increasing thrust on Climate Change amidst mixed views and political support at the global level; the increasing population in Uganda that puts pressure both on land and biomass, the emerging technologies in the realm of clean cooking; and the need for smart partnerships to leverage knowledge, funding, and interventions.

More about us

The Alliance was formed in 2013 by members from private companies, associations as well as individuals. The main purpose was to support efforts towards the reduction of demand on biomass energy resources through the provision of a joint coordination framework for the private and public actors in the subsector of clean cooking. In order to realize its objectives, the Alliance has partnerships with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD), Development Partners (DPs) Faith-based organizations like The province of the Anglican Church of Uganda and other Aid organizations as well as NGOs. Among its current activities, the Alliance is engaged in coordination and promotional roles for the clean cooking sector with a view of supporting the development and implementation of national policies and regulations. It also collects and distributes data and information to all sector players.

The Alliance has received financial support through members’ contributions and development partners such as GIZ through Energising Development (EnDev), WWF, and Global Alliance for Clean Cooking (now Clean Cooking Alliance). One of the reasons is the need to increase the range of sources of funds, the amount of funds as well as ensure growth and sustainability of the Alliance.

The Alliance has made significant strides on its mandate and objectives that included:

  • Developing and communicating membership services.
  • Recruitment of new members; attaining quality assurance for members’ products.
  • Ensuring sustainable resource mobilization.
  • Developing and implementing marketing and communications strategies.

The Alliance has held Barazas, worked with the UNBS to contribute to the drafting of the standards for biomass cookstoves, participated in the review of the Renewable Energy Policy of 2007, provided training to members in the design and production of Improved Cook Stoves, and engaged in tax advocacy.

The Alliance also recorded results in the following areas: marketing support to members; creating linkages to potential partners for the distribution of briquettes; provision of tax training; creating network and partnership opportunities, and ensuring access to lobbying and advocacy space.

In summary, the activities and reports by the members indicated that Alliance was in alignment with the mandate and strategic direction set out in the plan.

Going forward, the members and stakeholders indicated a need for the Alliance to engage in the following areas in addition to the ongoing activities:

  • Strengthen and improve communication structures.
  • Spearhead fundraising to generate funds for activities in the clean cooking sector.
  • Lobby for policies that support the development of biomass
  • Create synergies with development agencies.
  • Improvement of coordination of the members.
  • Build sustainable partnerships between UNACC members, government, and other entities.
