UCCCU entered a partnership with Heifer International in 2013 to implement the Uganda Domestic Biogas Programme (UDBP) among member farmers. UDBP supports beneficiary households to acquire subsidized biogas units. Promotion of biogas by UCCCU is part of UCCCU’s efforts to conserve the environment by encouraging members to shift from use of wood fuel to clean energy. Biogas units convert cattle and human waste to energy for cooking, lighting and provide bio slurry which is an organic fertilizer for pastures as well as gardens.
