Uganda – Develop a clean cooking MRV system to support new regulations

This project responds to a request made by the Ministry of Energy in Uganda to support the implementation of the national cooking strategy under development. Uganda is currently receiving CCAC funding to develop an integrated national clean cooking strategy that will support the government’s priorities for a strengthened clean cooking regulatory framework, reduced charcoal consumption, and improved access to clean cooking options, especially electricity, biogas and ethanol.

Project reference: [UG-23-003] Uganda – Develop a clean cooking MRV system to support new regulations.

What we're doing

This project will complement these efforts by developing a Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) system, recommended national standards for ethanol stoves, electric pressure cookers and electric induction cookers, and a national regulation on charcoal consumption. It is also expected to develop recommendations for national standards on clean cooking, and a corresponding draft regulation for charcoal consumption. This project will achieve by its completion:

  • The Government of Uganda adopts an MRV system for the residential cooking sector by the end of the project.
  • The Government of Uganda adopts national standards for ethanol stoves, electric pressure cookers and electric induction cookers by the end of the project or soon after.
  • The Government of Uganda adopts national standards for ethanol stoves, electric pressure cookers and electric induction cookers by the end of the project or soon after.
  • Relevant government authorities in Uganda have increased capacity to measure, verify and report on emissions and emission reductions from cooking by the end of the project.
