The 5-year USAID Zambia Alternatives to Charcoal (A2C) Activity will reduce charcoal energy consumption by 25% in Lusaka and 25% in Zambia, and catalyze a 38% increase in the use of private sector low emissions charcoal alternative technologies and/or fuels in order to reduce deforestation directly attributable to charcoal production. A2C works to remove the barriers to alternative technology and fuel (ATF) by strengthening an enabling environment for ATF value chains while promoting enforcement of the charcoal regulatory framework and working alongside consumers to shift preferences away from charcoal. The A2C activity is guided by an understanding of local market systems, strong private sector engagement, and a commitment to engaging youth and empowering women.
