Uganda has signed the first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) Partnership Plan in Africa to advance efforts to deliver on the SDGs and on commitments made under the Paris Agreement on climate change. The ‘Uganda NDC Partnership Plan’ lists five priority areas identified by the government for implementing its NDC, and begins to connect those priorities to partner and programme resources from the NDC Partnership and its network.

Signed on 26 June 2018 in Kampala, Uganda, the Plan focuses on creating an enabling environment for NDC implementation, effective coordination and prioritization, and monitoring and reporting on climate actions. Uganda’s NDC emphasizes adaptation actions, and the commitment to reduce emissions by 22% by 2030 relative to a business-as-usual scenario through actions related to energy, forestry and wetlands. The Plan takes these efforts a step further by establishing a timeline to achieve several NDC actions sooner than initially indicated, and detailing plans to mainstream climate resilience across sectors, and develop robust early warning and monitoring systems by 2020.

The five priority areas identified in the Plan are: strengthened operational and gender-responsive policy and institutional frameworks for effective climate governance; increased climate financing; effective and institutionalized measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems to monitor emissions and gender-responsive adaptation measures; strengthened capacity of stakeholders to integrate NDC and SDG commitments with a gender perspective into programmes; and accelerated project financing for NDC implementation.
