The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) will be the lead agency because the NAMA is primarily an Energy sector intervention. A coordination office will be established at the Ministry headquarters under the Commissioner Energy Resources Department led by the Project Coordinator MEMD. This Coordination office will liaise with a designated officer under the Commissioner Educational Planning in the Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES) headquarters. This designated officer will act as the Coordinator MOES. The Coordinator MOES will work closely with the Assistant Commissioner Construction Management Unit (CMU) MOES who will nominate a technical officer to be responsible for the project. The Coordinator MOES will also liaise directly with District staff led by the District Education Officers (DEO).
The DEO would identify candidate educational institutions that need support as well as an appropriate district-based NGO to carry out the sensitization. The selection of the institution would be based on the specific criteria mentioned above. The Uganda National Bureau of Standards will develop standards for institutional stoves. Stove manufacturers will manufacture and install the stoves, while microfinance institutions will provide financial products and business models for the educational institutions.
