CCEDUC works hard to protect the environment, and to promote and I implement activities towards environmental conservation in Yumbe district, which is home to both a growing population of locals and the majority of over 270’000 refugees from South Sudan and other countries.
The refugee influx has led to an increase in the rate of degradation and tree loss, as refugee and host households are highly dependent on forests and other woodlands as sources of wood fuel for cooking.
With support from the French Embassy in Kampala, Uganda CCEDUC has provided improved cooking stoves (which are less fuel required, less pollution, faster and more energy efficient) to target households e.g. in the refugee communities. This activity also included community campaigns to raise awareness about climate change, and the promotion and pursuit of tree planting with our community members in the fight against global warming.
We are open to collaboration with researchers, well-wishers and environmental officers to join us to fight for environmental protection, particularly in the Refugee settlement and host communities.
