Background

Background:

Uganda’s energy sector is dominated by biomass which contributes over 90% of the total consumable energy, with charcoal and firewood supplying about 6% and 84% respectively. Studies have established that the yearly demand for charcoal is increasing at a rate equal to that of the urban population growth and that charcoal will continue to be a significant source of energy in Uganda in the foreseeable future. Charcoal production and trade will also continue to play a key role in the economy by providing employment and being a source of income and livelihood for its producers, transporters, dealers and retailers.

According to a recent study undertaken by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MoEMD, 2005), the current techniques and practices used during charcoal production are too wasteful, leading to significant ecological damage including deforestation, climate variability, land degradation and formation of wastelands. The current charcoal production and trade regime is also largely uncontrolled, unlicensed and unregulated, leaving many gaps for undesirable social-economic and environmental effects to continue. The existence of many policies and legislation that are relevant and applicable to the sub-sector has not improved the situation since such policies and laws are largely generic in nature and not specific to addressing charcoal-related issues.

To ensure sustainability of charcoal production and proper functioning of the charcoal sub-sector, the GEF/UNDP – supported project: Enabling Environment for SLM to overcome Land Degradation in the Cattle Corridor, in collaboration with MAAIF and MoEMD are implementing several intervention measures in areas where most of the charcoal production takes place. One of the interventions aims to develop proper policies, legislation and institutional arrangements for effective implementation of best SLM practices in the project area.
