Uganda - Support national planning processes for SLCP mitigation and deliver National Methane Roadmap

Future
started:
2022

This project will advance work previously funded by the CCAC  to finalize “Phase 1” of the national planning process for short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation, equipping Uganda’s Ministry of Water and Environment to include SLCP mitigation in its NDC implementation plan.

Project reference: Uganda - Support national planning processes for SLCP mitigation and deliver National Methane Roadmap [UG-22-001]

Objectives

The project will achieve the following by its completion: 

  • Uganda’s government endorses the methane roadmap.
  • Uganda’s government integrates SLCPs into their NDC implementation plan and GHG emission inventory development processes.
  • Uganda’s government has improved estimates of methane emissions from key sectors to apply the IPCC Tier 2 methodology.

 

What we're doing

The main project deliverables are: 

  • Training to a National SLCP Unit that includes building capacity for: 
    • The integration of SLCPs into NDC implementation plan
    • The integration of SLCPs into greenhouse gas emission inventory development processes
    • preparing a SLCP analysis
    • Resource mobilization for mitigation measures
  • Workshops to improve estimates of methane emissions from major sources including oil and gas, agriculture, and waste by collecting data to improve methane emissions estimates and applying IPCC Tier 2 methodology for Uganda
  • An assessment report  that sets out the mitigation potential of priority methane mitigation measures in oil and gas, agriculture (including soil carbon capture, storage and use- CCSU) and waste in Uganda taking into consideration measures already included in the NDCs.
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat and is aligned with the national SLCP plan and NDCs.
