Ugandan Government Warns it May Pull Funding from Some Climate Mitigation Programs

The Ugandan government has cautioned organisations implementing climate change projects that do not meet the country’s priority adaptation programmes of action that they will lose their funding. Uganda developed National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) priorities in 2007 and relies on the Global Environmental Facility (GEF), a programme administered by the World Bank to help protect the global environment and to promote environmental sustainable development, for the policy’s implementation. Up to US$30 million is available to each of the 48 least developed countries (LDCs) including Uganda to implement NAPAs, which are supported by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), says Chebet Maikut, head of the Climate Change Department, Ministry of Water and Environment.
