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 Uganda is achieving maximum benefits from a Green Growth pathway.
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 Green Growth Development Strategy (UGGDS) provides additional guidance to ensure that these SOIs are attained in a sustainable manner. It estimates that full implementation of its interventions (green growth scenario) will enhance national GDP by 10 percent, deliver an additional 4 million green jobs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 28 percent relative to the conventional growth pathway.
