A national climate finance strategy is developed supporting the activities of the Climate Finance Readiness Programme of GIZ in Uganda. The project seeks to develop a coherent strategy to finance climate-relevant projects/programmes in priority sectors and present a bespoke implementation plan for two priority projects/programmes. The project runs over two phases, reviewing current policies, strategies and actions, the political economy and actors landscape and available and potential national and international public and private funding sources. Furthermore, the project includes an analysis of the costings of sector-specific climate change projects/programmes in various sub-sectors in Uganda (including agriculture, water, energy, natural resources, amongst others).
Stakeholder consultations and capacity development measures and workshops are used to identify barriers and gaps, to strengthen the abilities of priority stakeholders to access and manage climate finance based on a sound financing strategy.
