Assessment of Climate Change Mitigation Potentials and Actions in Uganda’s Transport Sector

Final Modelling Report

By Dominic Sheldon, Ian Skinner, Nadja Taeger, Seith Mugume

This project funded by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) aims to support the Government of Uganda (represented by Climate Change Directorate, CCD) in systematically assessing the country’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport, analysing the sector’s emission reduction potentials and optimising its contribution to the mitigation targets in the country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Using this data and analysis, decision makers are empowered to make evidence-based decisions about the future of Uganda’s transport sector in terms of mitigating greenhouse gases.
This report details the mitigation analysis of the transport sector that has been carried out, detailing the data that have been gathered, the projected future GHG emissions under a business-as-usual scenario, the options for mitigating these emissions and possible mitigation scenarios.

The modelling is based on data compiled by MEIR Engineering & Research, available for download here.
