UCAN believes that the protection of key elements of our environment is important for human health and wellbeing. The ability to breathe clean air, to have a wholesome supply of drinking water and to be protected against the harmful effects of things like air pollution, water pollution and waste, are fundamental to our well-being.
The adverse impacts of the environment on health are therefore a core concern for UCAN. An important part of our work involves identifying and assessing environmental problems and then working out the best approaches to tackle them.
Our focus over the next five years (2015/16 - 2019/20) is to:
1. Champion the provision of clean stoves to the most affected households country wide.
2. Champion the planting of trees by all our member churches and at every opportunity such as in areas across the country where we are implimenting activities.
3. Support Government efforts on Environmental Protection.
