“Climate Smart Uganda” is the title of the European Union Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (EU GCCA+) initiative side event at the Africa Climate Week (ACW) 2021 at 14.00 EAT (Kampala) on 28 September 2021. The event will be accessible online.
The EU’s support for national climate action in Uganda, and throughout Africa through the GCCA+ flagship initiative, highlights its commitment to partnering for whole society engagement in implementation and managing climate risks in achieving national and regional climate commitments made at the global level.
Since 2011, the EU GCCA has supported Uganda in adapting to climate change. Today through two bilateral projects, it is supporting the implementation of Uganda’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in the sector of food security in a changing climate. The EU GCCA+ completes its support to Uganda, through the Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility (LoCAL) which promotes climate change–resilient communities and local economies through a standard, internationally recognised country-based mechanism that attracts and channels climate finance to local government authorities in developing countries in particular least developed countries (LDCs). The European Union Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) and partners among which the Government of Uganda, LoCAL, the UN Capital Development Fund (UNDCF), German cooperation (GIZ), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) will join as panellists.
The event is available to be viewed here until 28 October 2021.
