2 Policy context Key CC initiatives NAMA longlist Presentation overview

3 National development context CONSTITUTION OF REPUBLIC OF UGANDA: Provides for rights of people to have a healthy environment UGANDA VISION 2040: Transforming Uganda from a peasant to a modern and prosperous country. KEY NATIONAL PRIORITIES FROM NDP 2010/11-2014/15: In support of social welfare & national development: Develop capacity for adaptation and mitigation activities Promote low carbon development path GHG emission impact of planned development activities Besides NDP, other sectoral policies and strategies equally do guide actions on CC in their respective sectors, eg.DRR.

4 Other key policy actions of relevance to LECB International: Uganda signatory to UNFCCC and KP and therefore has obligations and commitments. NAMAs as part of wider mitigation efforts by developing countries rooted on sustainable development 1st introduced in Bali in 2007 during UN high level climate change Conference (COP 13). They were further clarified during COP 15 (Copenhagen Accord),reinforced by Cancun Agreements at COP 16, and further reaffirmed in Durban (COP 17) and Doha at COP 18. Regional: East African CC Policy & CC Master Plan are in place. National: Green low-emission, climate-resilient development strategy at the national and Local Government levels supported by UNDP.

5 2012 Uganda climate change policy: update on status The National Climate Change Policy process has been highly participatory and consultative across all sectors and stakeholders. The process spear-headed by CCU/MWE with technical back up from consultancy team, started in Oct,2011. So far the final draft NCCCP is ready for Cabinet approval awaiting finalization of the costed Implementation Strategy which is in its final stages of completion after validation by the national CC conference. The Goal, Mission and Specific Objectives of the NCCP among others, provide for Mitigation actions. Policy Priorities identified include a number of sectors such as LULUCF,REDD+, Energy, Agriculture, Transport, Wetlands, Wastes Management, Industrial sector and TT.

6 Policy context Key CC initiatives NAMA longlist Presentation overview

7 Select key national initiatives relevant to NAMAs Second National Communication Energy Private sector-led initiatives (e.g., RE, improved cook stoves) Regional project: Sustainable Charcoal UNDP-GEF project: Addressing Barriers to Adoption of Improved Charcoal Production Technologies and sustainable land management practices UNDP MDG Carbon sustainable charcoal NAMA analysis CLEANSTART (off-grid energy access) CDM waste portfolio REDD+ readiness

8 Update on the Second National Communication Start date: Jan, 2013 End date: Dec, 2014 Budget: USD 405,000 Components: National circumstances. Undertake national GHG inventories for yrs 1994-2004 and make projections of emissions trends from 2005 to 2035. Vulnerability assessment and national adaptation strategies. The LECB and SNC complement and reinforce one another. On mitigation, SNC will focus on: Collecting baseline data/plans for key sectors for assessing GHG mitigation options. Developing baseline data for projecting GHG emissions trends. Develop Mitigation scenarios for key socio-economic sectors. Undertake GHG abatement analysis. SNC will cover 6 sectors of top GHG sources and sinks.

10 Update on NAMA Framework Start date: April 2011 End date: Nov, 2012 Supported by: AfDB The Bank’s support was to provide consultancy to the CCU/MWE to undertake study, identify and facilitate process on the country’s NAMAs framework for submission to the UNFCCC Secretariat in accordance with the Copenhagen Accord and Cancun Agreements. Key Priority sectors for NAMAs: Energy, Agriculture, Forestry and REDD-plus, Transport, and Wastes. For each of above, a set of possible actions, programmes and policy measures have been proposed and prioritized based on contrib. to set of criteria

11 NAMA longlist (LECB sectors) ENERGY SECTOR Promote use of solar PV lighting Expand grid and connections to increase energy access Promote use of LPG for cooking Promote use of solar water heaters in homes Promote use of improved cook stoves Optimise the generation & transmission system interface by upgrading control systems Incentivise distribution of efficient appliances Promote use of clean and efficient kilns Improve consumer supply & payment system Improve regulator regime of electricity supply Promote use of solar water heating & lighting systems

12 NAMA longlist (LECB sectors) # 2 TRANSPORT SECTOR Enforce road worthiness certificates Rehabilitate and promote alternative transport – rail, inland water, non-motorised Introduce and expand infrastructure for non-motorised transport Incentivise the use of public transport Introduce mass transit systems

13 NAMA longlist (LECB sectors) # 3 AGRICULTURE SECTOR Promote mulching and zero burning practices Promote cultivation of high-yielding upland rice Enforce legislation and regulation on wetland and forest demarcation and reclamation where necessary Promote use of organic fertilisers Promote recycling and mulching of crop residues Promote agricultural zoning

14 NAMA longlist (LECB sectors) # 4 WASTE SECTOR Promote capture and utilisation of methane from landfill sites Promote waste separation and composting Promote clean waste treatment technologies (biogas, filtration) Support waste-to-energy initiatives (cogeneration, briquetting, biogas)

15 NAMA longlist (non-LECB sector) FORESTRY SECTOR Enhance afforestation/reforestation Strengthen community participation in forest planting & management Enforce forest demand reserve demarcation and mapping Promote agro-forestry Promote sustainable management of woodlands Carry out land cover mapping, zoning, and monitoring
