Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions




The information presented in the NAMA database is collected from publically available information on NAMAs and NAMA related activities. It does not represent official submissions and may not reflect the priorities of the country government.

  Stage Sector name Sub-sector Objective
Promoting cultivation of high-yielding upland rice in Uganda Under development Agriculture Crops (incl. NO2 from fertilizer use) The objective of the NAMA is to increase rice production in Uganda for both domestic and export markets by promoting the cultivation of high-yielding upland rice, as opposed to lowland paddy rice, in various parts of the country.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for Kampala Under development Transport The purpose of this NAMA is to improve the efficiency of public transport, by moving commuters from private vehicles to public transportation to address both traffic and pollution problems. The NAMA will reduce transport emissions in the Kampala metropolitan region from a business as usual baseline.
Climate-Smart Dairy Livestock Value Chains in Uganda Under development Agriculture The objective of this NAMA is to trigger resilient low-carbon development in the dairy sector through the introduction of climate-smart agricultural practices and to bring the dairy production sector of Uganda onto a low carbon and more resilient path.
Developing appropriate strategies and techniques to reduce methane emissions from livestock production in Uganda Under development Agriculture To develop appropriate strategies and techniques of reducing methane emissions associated with livestock production which, according to the FAO Statistics Yearbook 2013 is the major source of GHG emissions in Uganda’s agriculture sector.
Fuel Efficiency in Motor Vehicles Under development Transport Public transport
Passenger vehicles
The purpose of this NAMA is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable development in the transport sector through the implementation of a Fuel Efficiency Initiative that includes the development of policies and regulations that will promote the use of more efficient vehicles.
Integrated Wastewater Treatment for Agro process Water in Uganda Under development Waste There is a high national priority to address the problem of poorly or untreated treated wastewater discharge in urban areas given the extent of pollution, especially in Lake Victoria basin. The NAMA will assist in reducing pollution loads from agro-processing factories on surface water systems, especially the Lake Victoria basin.
National Fuel Efficiency Initiative Under development Transport The objective of the NAMA is to promote ownership and use of cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicle.
Periodic Vehicle Inspection for Emissions and Roadworthiness Under development Transport Public transport
Passenger vehicles
This NAMA is intended to reduce emissions from vehicles, which have a high potential for operations related emissions. This is a policy NAMA, which is important due to the type, age and condition of imported vehicles in Uganda. It will also target operation and use through the lifecycle of the vehicles.
Reduction, Recycling and Reuse of Solid Waste in Kampala City Under development Waste Exploits the joint responsibility of local authorities and residents or persons working in these urban areas of Kampala City to contribute to waste management using the 3Rs. The focus is to reduce waste generation and improve waste collection, recycling and reuse. The NAMA will target the 60 per cent of solid waste in Kampala that is not collected by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
Green Schools in Uganda Under development Energy Renewable energy (unspecified)
Energy efficiency
The objective of the NAMA is to provide sustainable energy solutions to boarding schools in the mainly off-grid rural areas with solar energy, efficient cook stoves, and biogas technologies.
The Promotion of the Use of Efficient Institutional Stoves in Institutions Under development Energy Energy efficiency This NAMA intends to reduce emissions through the promotion of the use of improved energy efficient cook stoves in educational institutions at all levels in the different regions of Uganda.

Feasibility studies for NAMAs

  Stage Sector name Sub-sector Objective
Development of grid-connected renewable energy Feasibility study Energy Renewable energy (unspecified) Support of the development of grid-connected renewable energy generation through a feed-in-tariff and through carbon credit generation
Sustainable charcoal in Uganda Feasibility study Energy Refining and energy production The objective of this NAMA is to improve the value chain of charcoal in Uganda including the introduction of improved kilns and thereby increase energy security while fighting one of the drivers of deforestation.

The NAMA includes three elements of the value chain:

  • Production
  • Transport
  • Retail
