Supporting Uganda to advance their NAP Process

Project Overview

Status of assistance to Uganda for their NAP process:

  • A delegation from Uganda attended the NAP-GSP Africa Regional Training Workshop in April 2014.
  • A meeting was held COP19 between NAP-GSP team and Mr. Obong O. O. David, on request from Uganda for support on a NAP for Uganda from NAP-GSP.
  • An official letter of request for support from Uganda was received by NAP-GSP in December 2013.
  • A Ugandan Government delegation attended the NAP-GSP Africa Regional Training Workshop (Anglophone) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in April 2014.

Country Initiatives

Building Resilient Communities, Wetland Ecosystems and Associated Catchments in Uganda

Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems in Uganda

This project, "Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems in Uganda to support climate resilient development", responds to priorities and actions identified in the NAPA of Uganda which articulate the need for securing, transferring and installing critical technologies, as well as developing the necessary systems for climate change-related information to permeate into decision-making processes. The technologies required to achieve these aims will increase the capacity of the national early warning network to forewarn and rapidly respond to extreme climate events.

Climate Change Adaptation in the Mbale region of Uganda (TACC)

The Down to Earth: Territorial Approach to Climate Change (TACC) is part of a partnership between the United Nations and sub-national governments for fostering climate friendly development at the sub-national level. This partnership is a collaborative effort involving UNDP, UNEP and eight associations of regions.

Mountain Ecosystem-based Adaptation in Uganda

Mount Elgon landscape in Uganda is the seventh highest mountain in Africa, a major catchment area and straddles the border between Kenya and Uganda. The climate is cool with a mean annual rainfall of 1,270 mm. The population of Mount Elgon is almost entirely rural and dependent on subsistence agriculture, with approximately 564,000 people living in the 4 districts which make up the project site. The region is home to Mt Elgon National Park and is of great conservation value, but high population density means that agriculture is spreading rapidly.

Supporting developing countries to integrate the agricultural sectors into National Adaptation Plans: Uganda

Agriculture is a crucial sector in Uganda, accounting for approximately 21.9 percent of its GDP, 85 percent of its export earnings, and 68 percent of total employment. The country is experiencing the effects of climate change including increased temperatures, frequent disease and insect infestations, disrupted rainfall patterns, and frequent floods, droughts and extreme weather events. This has severe impacts on agriculture, making the sector highly vulnerable to climate change. 
 

Uganda NAMA

Under the Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme, financed by the EU, Germany, and AusAID, participating countries are primarily focusing on capacity building activities at the national level.  This includes formulating Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) and/or Nationally appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), as well as establishing the underlying data collection systems (i.e. national GHG inventory systems, and monitoring, reporting and verification systems).
