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.
Activities: (2018 - 2019)
The NAMA would reduce emissions on a per vehicle basis through a Fuel Efficiency Initiative designed to increase fuel efficiency in light- and heavy-duty vehicles.
The actions could include development of a fuel efficiency policy; development of a regulatory framework for vehicle age, vehicle emissions, and fuel standards; vehicle inspection and maintenance; tax incentives to encourage acquisition of more fuel efficient vehicles; fiscal incentives for a vehicle replacement scheme; and a public information campaign. Reductions in fuel consumption per vehicle will lead to emission reductions from a business as usual (BAU) baseline.
Other important stakeholders include the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development, Uganda Revenue Authority, Uganda National Bureau of Standards, National Planning Authority, Kampala Capital City Authority, Uganda Police, Transport Licensing Board, National Environment Management Authority and Civic Society. Policy support, research and analysis could potentially be supported by the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI), particularly through the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The Climate Change Unit (CCU) in the Ministry of Water and Environment would provide overall oversight on emissions monitoring reporting and verification (MRV).
