The government of Uganda has developed investment plans under the SREP, PPCR, and FIP to accelerate action in priority areas. Under the SREP, Uganda is directing $50 million in concessional financing to enhance the enabling environment and catalyze investments in geothermal, solar PV net-metering, mini-grids, and wind power.
Uganda’s FIP investment plan and PPCR strategic program for climate resilience can serve as roadmaps for systematically mitigating and managing climate change impacts. They detail how Uganda aims to mainstream climate resilience into development planning, employ a landscape approach to address forest loss and degradation, and pilot new approaches to pressing climate vulnerabilities.
