Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The National Designated Authority (NDA)- Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED) in collaboration with Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has launched a call for proposals for Strengthening Uganda’s Engagement with the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through the Development of the GCF Country Programme Project Portfolio (2020-2023).
Government of Uganda places high priority in accessing climate finance to assist in addressing its climate change adaptation and mitigation funding needs as articulated in the Nationally Determined Commitments (NDCs). Uganda’s growing body of policies and strategic plans such as the Vision 2040 strategy and the Second National Development Plan 2015/16- 2019/20 demonstrates the commitment of the Government to ready the country to adapt to and mitigate climate change.
In line with the foregoing, the National Designated Authority (NDA) for GCF is undertaking a two-year Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme (RPSP) in partnership with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). The Readiness program builds on Uganda’s earlier efforts to strengthen its engagement with the GCF with the objective of realizing the following:
Energy; Forestry and Wetlands; Agriculture and Livestock; Transport; Water; Health and Infrastructure.
Public, Private and Civil Society Organizations involved in climate change action(s).
