Environment Alert (EA) is implementing a project titled ‘Increasing access to sustainable and renewable energy alternatives in the Albertine Graben’ that aims at communities adopting sustainable and renewable energy alternatives to reduce dependency on biomass for their energy needs. The project is being implemented in collaboration with the Wild Wide Fund-Uganda Country Office (WWF-UCO) with financial support from NORAD. One of the project outcomes is ‘Civil society in partnership with other agents of change is transforming government and private sector decisions and practices towards sustainable and renewable energy development to the benefit of women, men and youth’
There are already initiatives that have been done to contribute to the achievement of the above project outcome, i.e. EA has already developed a CSOs and Networks advocacy strategy. The strategy provides a framework for the project CSOs & Networks to undertake advocacy interventions aimed at increasing access to sustainable and renewable energy options in the Albertine Graben to reduce the demand for biomass there by contributing to conservation of high value forest ecosystems to benefit people and nature in Uganda.
Environmental Alert is organizing a two (2) days National level training of project CSOs and Networks on Monitoring and Evaluation as applied for lobbying and advocacy.
The training is mainly geared to equip members in aspects of M & E as applied for lobbying and advocacy.
This training is scheduled for 1-2 July, 2019 and will involve 23 key representatives of CSOs & Networks. However, participation is by invite.
