Connect me to Jackline Rebecca Wananda
Energy access plays a key role in poverty alleviation especially where people live under extreme poverty and use wood-based fuel. Forest depletion is inevitable if households continue using firewood for cooking purposes. The current climate change trends necessitate adoption of technologies and solutions that can address these problems. The biogas, poultry and backyard gardening project can have a combined solution that simultaneously curbs problems of fuel scarcity, food insecurity and poor health and addressing land degradation. The project will provide energy from biogas digester and concurrently the poultry reared and the backyard garden products will have positive impacts on nutrition and food security of slum dwellers. The project strives to address problems of water and land pollution that cause degradation when wastes are not handled properly. For single biogas plant or poultry project, bio slurry and poultry droppings can end up polluting land and water bodies. Similarly, backyard gardening project alone would be unviable without bio-slurry and poultry droppings thus low vegetable yields. Therefore, the three ventures under one project boost the efficiency and output of each individual project. Finally, the project endeavor to significantly impact the social, environmental and economic aspects of Kamuli slum community. The project will be a sustainable venture in providing energy for lighting and cooking for Kamuli slum dwellers. Poultry rearing and backyard gardening are sources of food and revenue that can sustain households enhancing their social and health wellbeing. Adopting this pilot project in Kamuli slum area will enhance diversified benefits to households and serve as an example to national strategists.
