Kampala was selected amongst seven pilot projects to receive a €950,000 grant to finance the implementation of its Climate Change Action Plan.
"We now look forward to this proposal translating into tangible actions, results and lasting impact. We hope this partnership will stimulate economic and social development and improve the quality of life of citizens.What we all hope for and aspire to achieve is a clean, healthy and safe city, hopefully combined with efficient mobility"— Kristian Schmidt,EU Head of Delegation in Uganda.
The project will be implemented over a period of 3 years with the objective of developing a low carbon and climate resilient Kampala as part of the Covenant of Mayors in Sub Saharan Africa.The development of the Kampala Climate Change Action Strategy started in 2014 to support the vision of transforming the Uganda capital into a vibrant, attractive and sustainable city. The project will build the resilience of the city to the impacts of climate change and protect the city’s residents, especially the poor and vulnerable, through targeting key areas of energy efficiency, renewable energy, integrated urban planning and greening, urban agriculture, experience-sharing, air quality and GHG monitoring.
