A Project Preparation Grant (PPG) has been approved by the GEF Secretariat to prepare a Full-Size Project (FSP) document for submission under the Global Environmental Facility Phase 5, System of Transparent Allocation of Resources (GEF-5 STAR). In this context an International expert on Biomass energy (with specific experience in applied technology transfer) is required to support the team achieve the components proposed in the PIF, and expected outcomes to be achieved, as outlined in the approved Project Identification Form (PIF).

The Key Stakeholder groups include Government–Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD), the National Forestry Authority (NFA), National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), National Agricultural research Organization (NARO), Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF), Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) and Uganda National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST). The resources being requested for this project will be targeted towards piloting low carbon emission sustainable charcoal technologies and broader sustainable land and forest management practices within a targeted landscape.

Expertise will be sought from FAO for the transfer of technologies in agro-pastoral areas through use of farmer field schools.

Pilot efficient carbonization technologies (to reduce GHG emissions).
Strengthen stakeholders’ capacity in SLM/SFM to ensure access to renewable biomass stocks
Establish a functional production-supply chain extending incentives for producers to adopt more sustainable practices
Incubate small, medium and micro-enterprises in form of a sustainable charcoal sub-sector
