Closing Date: 30 June 2022
Estimated project cost: US$ 150,000 – 175,000
This project aims to 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.
Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:
1. Uganda’s government endorses the methane roadmap
|Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented||1|
2. Uganda’s government integrates SLCPs into their NDC implementation plan and GHG emission inventory development processes.
Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented
3. Uganda’s government has improved estimates of methane emissions from key sectors to apply the IPCC Tier 2 methodology
Number of government entities with a demonstrated improved capacity for SLCP action
The project should deliver at a minimum:
- 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.
Applicants are encouraged to propose additional outputs as needed to ensure the expected project outcomes are achieved.
To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements:

Eligible applicants are invited to apply before the deadline by downloading the Application Form.
It is recommended that applicants review the Guidance for Applicants prior to completing the Application Form.
The completed Application Form should be submitted to email@example.com before 30 June 2022.
- A preliminary review of proposals submitted by the deadline will be conducted by members of the CCAC Secretariat, Funding Task Team and Board, in consultation with relevant CCAC Partners.
- Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals in further detail by 22 July 2022 and to respond to follow-up questions about their application.
- Shortlisted applicants will be informed of the final decision regarding their proposal by 31 August 2022. Successful applicants will be invited to develop a Project Implementation Plan and Detailed Budget in consultation with the CCAC Secretariat and relevant CCAC Partners.
More information regarding Uganda’s involvement as a CCAC Partner is available on their Partner Page.
Should be in line with a modality agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. At minimum, a “methane roadmap” must:
- Identify methane mitigation pathways.
- Assess the cost of implementation.
- Assess the institutional arrangements for implementation.
- Develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for the methane mitigation pathways.
It may also include:
- Improvements to the national methane inventory
