About EASE & CA
East African Civil Society for Sustainable Energy & Climate Action (EASE&CA) is a three-year project (July 2019-July 2022) implemented in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda under the support of CISU. The main objective of the EASE&CA project is to increase access to sustainable energy and other climate solutions to local communities in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania with both women’s and men’s full and effective participation and leadership for improved livelihoods and reduction of poverty. This will be realized by combining Civil Society Organization (CSO) activities at local, national and international levels in ways, where they reinforce each other. The project primarily works towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 1 (poverty), SDG5 (gender), SDG7 (clean energy), SDG 13 (climate action), SDG 17 (partnerships).
Project areas include Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania and three Ugandan districts (Nakasongola, Nakaseke and Nebbi districts). The EASE&CA project is supported by CISU (Civil society in development) society fund, Denmark.
