How Uganda’s climate reporting is delivering national value
Producing a national greenhouse gas inventory is no small task, especially for least developed countries, who have had relatively less reporting experience. And this is only set to become harder with the introduction in 2024 of the Paris Agreement’s Enhanced Transparency Framework.
But, as the experience of Uganda shows, greenhouse gas inventory is not just about international accountability; it can also offer valuable opportunities at the national level. Uganda has put in place legal frameworks, cooperation agreements and technical capacity for gathering and collating greenhouse gas data — and submitted its national inventory in 2019.
This case study provides an overview of these institutional arrangements, Uganda’s ‘learning by doing’ approach to capacity building, and the lessons learnt along the way.
