SAF-TESO is an Indigenous Non-Profit NGO registered in the Republic of Uganda since 2009, dedicated to improving the human rights, social and economic wellbeing, and health of Ugandans. It possesses the UNCCD International Accreditation and the United Nations ECOSOC consultative status, and works to enhance and contribute to the three Rio Conventions on Biodiversity, Climate Change and Desertification.

SAF-TESO is also contributing to several agenda items of the UNFCCC COP28, especially Food Systems and Sustainable Agriculture, Loss and Damage, and Global Action on Adaptation. Moreover, the organization aims to support the African Union Strategy for Climate Resilience and Development, with emphasis on production towards an agro ecological transition to reduce GHG emissions.

On June 11, 2023, SAF-TESO was officially accepted by the Open Dialogues International Foundation as a national team and granted permission to perform activities in Uganda as part of the Open Dialogues on Climate Change Project. The organization is also a member of the Global Landscape Forum (GLFx) and Global Networks of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) for Climate Change Resilience, Climate Change Education, Research, Advocacy and Sustainable Development.

SAF-TESO is coordinating all health, environmental, and human rights CSOs in North-Eastern parts of Uganda, specifically in the Teso and Karamoja Sub-Regions. It strives to build collective efforts through its member organizations to combat and prevent the climate change crisis, HIV, TB, malaria, and other STIs.

Our strategies focus on strengthening collaboration, promoting creativity and innovation, research, and community building in the SAF-TESO’s areas of operation. This way we can gain a strong voice in advocacy for ending AIDS, TB, malnutrition, food insecurity, food systems waste and loss, and the climate crisis in Uganda by 2030.
