Green Growth Development Strategy for Uganda

The Green Growth Development Strategy is intended to address Uganda's contribution to global climate change and global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It aims to assist the government, businesses, and others in establishing the key enabling conditions and tools needed to participate in emerging international GHG management frameworks and meet obligations under the Copenhagen Accord.

In this project, Ecofys assisted UNDP, and worked closely together with the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Water & Environment in Uganda. The Strategy specifically focuses on building capacity for Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) of GHG emissions, market readiness for increased financing and private sector investment in emissions reduction activities. The Green Growth Development Strategy builds on the development priorities outlined in the National Development Plan II and the Vision 2040.
