Climate Change Mitigation (CCM)

90% of the total primary energy consumption in Uganda is generated through biomass with firewood being the most used (78.6%). In 2017, biofuels accounted for 94.6% of the carbon dioxide emission from energy use in Uganda. Carbon dioxide emission in Uganda has rapidly increased from 1,177 million tons in 1996 to 6,130 million tons in 2018, thus showing an annual growth of 3.97%. This indicates that primarily relying on biofuels is catastrophic to Uganda's climate. Destroying the climate does not happen overnight but gradually. To reduce climate change, there is need to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions. This can happen by reducing the sources of these emissions or strengthening the basins that accumulate and store these gases, such as forests, energies and water bodies. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change observes that the goal of climate mitigation is to avoid significant human interference with the climate system and to stabilize greenhouse gas levels in a timeframe sufficient to allow ecosystems to adapt naturally to climate change, ensure that food production is not threatened and to enable economic development to proceed in a sustainable manner Along that line, under this program area, Rejoice Africa Foundation is doing the following • Stabilize greenhouse gas and carbon emission levels by strengthening environmental conservation within grassroots communities in Uganda. • Strengthen food security by promoting soil conservation, Agroforestry and kitchen gardens within grassroots communities in Uganda. • Reduce the use of biofuels within grassroots communities in Uganda through the promotion of renewable energy sources and smart cooking stoves
