Uganda - Support for integrated national clean cooking strategy [UG-22-002]

by CCAC - 28 July, 2023


This project responds to the request by Uganda’s Renewable Energy Department in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development to support preliminary studies to develop Uganda’s integrated national clean cooking strategy, including quantifying the emission reduction potential (GHG and black carbon) of clean cooking solutions. The development of this overall integrated national clean cooking strategy and action plan will guide the Government and its partners on how to achieve the targeted 50% clean cooking access by 2025. 


  • Uganda’s government has a coordinated integrated National Clean Cooking strategy to achieve clean cooking targets with a clear process to measure and monitor the extent to which these interventions are meeting Uganda’s Third National Development Plan Target by 2025. 


The project should deliver at a minimum:   

  • An overall consolidation of the strategies currently being developed for biogas technology, LPG, electric cooking, ethanol, and other clean cooking technologies to provide targets on how all these clean technologies can achieve Uganda’s Third National Development Plan Target to increase share of clean energy used for cooking from the baseline 15% in 2018/19 to 50% by 2025. The Third National Development Plan includes an objective to “Promote uptake of alternative and efficient cooking technologies including rural areas (electric cooking, domestic and institutional biogas and LPG).” 
  • Provide clear targets for all clean cooking technologies such as electric pressure-cooking, LPG, ethanol, and clean and modern biomass on how they meet the 50% clean cooking target by 2025. 
  • An assessment of the adequacy of these government incentives for achieving these clean cooking target by 2025. 
  • Develop robust results, monitoring, evaluation and learning framework with SMART standard indicators for decision support. 


To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements: 

  • Are complete and submitted before the deadline

  • Quality: the clarity of the proposed outputs and activities and the extent to which they will deliver the expected outcomes
  • Experience: evidence of the project team’s understanding of the national planning process and short-lived climate pollutants, and their ability to deliver the proposed project
  • Value for money: the level of funding requested for project delivery
  • Alignment: how well the proposal demonstrates its contribution to the CCAC 2030 Strategy and National Planning, Policy, and Implementation Engagement Strategy


  • A preliminary review of proposals submitted by the deadline will be conducted by members of the CCAC Secretariat, Funding Task Team and Board, in consultation with relevant CCAC Partners.  
  • Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals in further detail and to respond to follow-up questions about their application.
  • Successful applicants will be invited to develop a Project Implementation Plan and Detailed Budget in consultation with the CCAC Secretariat and relevant CCAC Partners.
  • Projects are expected to be launched in 2023.
