Forest Management and Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain

This 4-year project  (2021-2025) operating in 14 Districts of Uganda, aims to foster positive change in the charcoal value chain. It is a joint effort of the Government of Uganda, led by the Ministry of Water and Environment and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, in partnership with the European Union. The project is implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO),  with the main goal to address the environmental, social, and economic challenges associated with charcoal production. By promoting sustainable practices like establishing woodlots and using efficient charcoal production kilns, the project seeks to mitigate negative impacts while also encouraging the adoption of cleaner energy alternatives. In addition, the FM&SCVC project aims to foster positive change in the charcoal value chain for the benefit of communities and the environment. The Districts covered include  Mubende, Kassanda, Kiboga, Nakaseke, Luwero, Nwoya, Amuru, Gulu, Lamwo, Kitgum, Adjumani, Obongi, Moyo and Yumbe.
