The European Union (EU) represented by the European Commission in Uganda and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) are in cooperation to advance the Greening Uganda’s Urbanization and Industrialization agenda. This project is part of the European Union’s Inclusive Green Economy Uptake Programme (GreenUP) financed under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) and will be implemented for a 36 months period with a total cost estimated of just under EUR 5mln.
The project aims to promote sustainable development and inclusive Green Growth in Uganda by focusing on green city development, green industrialization, efficient waste management and Green Growth Integration into planning and budgeting. This is to ensure that Uganda is achieving maximum benefits from a Green Growth pathway.
The primary programmatic solution(s) 1. Green Investment, 2. Climate Action whereas the secondary programmatic solution(s) 6. Waste Management, 7. Sustainable Mobility, 8. Green Buildings, 9. Solar PV, 10. Green Industries.
The overall objective of the GreenUp action is to contribute to the Ugandan transition toward an inclusive, green and competitive low carbon economy with the creation of decent green jobs. Within the framework of this intervention this Project has been designed to support the Government of Uganda (GOU) with their National Development Plan III (NDPIII) commitments for 2020/21-2024/25, and the long term commitments as expressed in the Uganda Green Growth Development Strategy (UGGDS) and Uganda’s Vision 2040.
It will directly contribute to greener growth paths to becoming a middle-income country, through the acceleration of investments in green growth pathways.
The project impact objective is: “Uganda achieves strong, inclusive and sustainable economic growth”, GGGI measures this through its Strategic Objective Indicators (S0Is): 1) GHG emission reduction, 2) creation of green jobs, 3) increased access to sustainable services, 4) improved air quality, and 5) enhanced adaptation to climate change. This will be delivered through a set of outputs and supporting activities all aimed at the acceleration of green investment (public and private) in Uganda.
The Uganda Vision 2040 specifically highlights industrialization and urbanization as key focal are as it envisions that 60% of Ugandans will live in urban areas by 2040 and therefore, actions of designing, servicing and attracting investments into greening secondary cities will help Uganda to benefit from the economic and social dividends that come with urbanization.
