3 The Overview of the Uganda MSW Compost Project The PoA Goal Avoid methane emissions from Municipal waste landfills by undertaking composting of the wastes and using the organic matter in wastes as humus for soil conditioning and plant growth This is achieved by: Identifying towns/municipal entities in Uganda to set up composting plants and managing the program in line with UNFCCC CDM procedures

4 Overview Continued The Business Model Adopted

5 The Overview contd Program is registered with the EB (12th Apr 2010, Reg No.2956 ) The program will create 83,700 metric t CO2 e per annum for the first crediting period of 7yrs. Addition of CPAs yet to be realized Program Registration Status

6 Implementation, Issues/ Challenges and Lessons Learnt The two key phases explained: a)Program Initiation (meetings with officials and key stakeholders) and actual building of the compost plants, acquiring machinery and training b)Implementation involves actual composting, monitoring and further training in CDM processes and regulation Project timeline Program initiation & building infrastructure Program Implementation

7 Issues/Challenges Project Monitoring a)Monitoring equipment (availability, skills required for daily use and Calibration) b)Costs for maintaining the monitoring required c)Maintaining a highly motivated list of PEs Training & Awareness raising a)Lack of local expertise with CDM Knowledge b)Information gap in the project entities Validation and Registration a)Long waiting times b)Costs (USD 80 – 100K) c)Amount of information requested

8 Lessons Learnt Some key lessons: a)PoA promotion is continuous. b)Training and Awareness raising should be part and parcel of the program management c)CER revenues greatly impacts implementation of the activities. d)CDM procedures are lengthy and very uncertain

9 Conclusion a)No prior experience for PoA activities A steep learning curve for all involved. b)Long timelines affect the motivation of those involved Favorable procedures required c)CER Revenues are required to make the CPA sustainable Favorable procedures required d)Training and awareness raising is a critical program component DNAs can play a more active role in Training & information dissemination
