Background

Capacity development is essential and central to countries’ efforts to successfully tackle climate change. This includes increasing institutional capacities to provide appropriate skills and mechanisms of support and coordination when addressing climate change risks. It includes strengthening technical knowledge to better understand and make use of climate information, and increasing relevant data and access to data for planning and informed decision making.

This EU-UNDP Climate Change Capacity Building Programme aimed at strengthening the technical and institutional capacity of Uganda in climate change mitigation actions that promote low emission (carbon) development in line with the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol frameworks while at the same time promoting socio-economic development. This action is primarily for enhancing the national capacity for establishing GHG emission inventory and MRV systems, and for developing NAMAs and LEDS. The Project further targeted enhancement of the national capacities and raising general knowledge and awareness on climate change, and provide support to the development of the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). It also aimed at contributing to putting climate change issues higher on the national agenda through strengthened cooperation and increased involvement of all relevant stakeholders in the process, and strengthening and building national capacities for participation in different mechanisms related to low emission development and fulfilling other commitments to the UNFCCC.
