The contribution of the NAMA Facility will help to transform the school sector by replacing inefficient cooking facilities with Institutional Improved Cook Stoves (IICS). 75 per cent of the schools will be financed through support of the NAMA Facility, for the remaining schools the Government of Uganda will provide funding.
Possible co-benefits include the reduction in forest degradation, increased health benefits, and improved economic conditions of schools (through the reduced need to purchase firewood).
Mitigation potential: The NSP targets annual emission reductions of 760,000 t CO2 per annum by year 5. At the end of year 10, emission reductions will have reached 1,878,000 t CO2 per year.
