Uganda’s primary development strategies, the Uganda Vision 2040 and the National Development Plan II (NDPII, 2015-2020), map out an ambitious growth agenda for the coming decades. Uganda aims to achieve an annual economic growth rate of 8.4% by the year 2025, and attain Upper Middle-Income Status by 2040. However, sustainable economic growth is threatened by the country’s vulnerability to climate change as 70% of the labor force is dependent on rain-fed agriculture. The Government of Uganda (GoU), therefore, has adopted a climate-centric economic model through the development, adoption and launching of the Uganda Green Growth Development Strategy (UGGDS) and Roadmap. The UGGDS is designed to achieve an inclusive low emissions economic growth process that emphasizes effective and efficient use of natural, human and physical capital while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide for present and future generations. The strategy seeks to strengthen the technical and institutional capacity for the development of a greenhouse gas (GHG) national inventory system, nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs), and the associated measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems. However, a number of cross-sectoral barriers to a green growth transition have been identified, and need to be addressed as part of a green transition.
