WELCOME TO UNACC: A CHAMPION FOR CLEAN COOKING IN UGANDA

The Uganda National Alliance on Clean Cooking (UNACC) is a non-profit organization established in 2013 to address the pressing issue of clean cooking in Uganda. UNACC brings together a diverse coalition of stakeholders, including private companies, associations, and individuals, to promote the adoption and utilization of clean cooking technologies and practices.

WHY CLEAN COOKING MATTERS

Traditional cooking methods, such as cooking over open fires, are a major source of health problems in Uganda. These methods produce harmful pollutants that can cause respiratory problems, heart disease, and other health problems. They also contribute to deforestation and climate change.

Clean cooking, on the other hand, is the use of cooking technologies that do not produce harmful pollutants. These technologies include improved cookstoves, biogas stoves, and solar cookers.
