The Kasese district in the South Western region of Uganda faces a serious challenge; it has been appointed Green Energy Champion District by the WWF and must be completely CO2-neutral by 2030.
One of the obvious opportunities is to find ways of transforming the city's abundance of waste into a source of energy. Access2innovation has been working with a number of local and international partners in Kasese to work out sustainable solutions for the city's waste handling system.
The project is not currently active, but you are welcome to download our waste to energy concept note from 2012 as well as the report on waste management in Kasese that was done by students from Aalborg University in 2013.
