Policy Brief: Uganda Green Growth Report

Uganda’s economy is highly dependent on its natural resources. Therefore, it is critical that the country pursues a green growth path in its economic development. The route to inclusive, low-emission economic growth for Uganda is led by the Uganda Green Growth Development Strategy (UGGDS). The Strategy strengthens fundamentals to harness existing green growth opportunities to realize Uganda’s 2040 Vision. However, since the inception of this strategy, there has been no monitoring report to track it, Uganda’s National Planning Authority (NPA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE), and with the support of NatuReS, developed the country’s first-ever Green Growth Report Under the theme “Stimulating resource use efficiency in manufacturing and waste management for sustainable development”.
