LTS is providing technical support to the government of Uganda in developing Uganda’s Green Growth Development Strategy (GGDS) on behalf of UNDP. The strategy is intended to address Uganda’s contribution to global climate change and global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by assisting 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, as reaffirmed during the UN climate conference in Cancun in December 2010. The assignment aims to develop a GGDS to 2030 that responds effectively to Uganda’s development priorities and has the following objectives:
In collaboration with Ecofys and a wide range of stakeholders, led by the National Planning Authority and Climate Change Department, LTS will develop a GGDS through a participatory process. The scope of work includes:
The UGGDS will focus on the period to 2030, examining key mitigation sectors identified in the Uganda National Climate Change Policy and in particular those prioritised under the UNDP LECB initiative, namely: agriculture, energy, transport and waste. The UGGDS will prioritise climate change mitigation measures that contribute to low-carbon development, while also offering co-benefits aligned with Uganda’s development vision. LTS will lead on the analysis and development of the MRV component as well as prioritising mitigation measures based on adaptation co-benefits, identifying adaptation options, and including adaptation measures in the action plan.
