Technology Needs Assessment

The Ministry of Water and Environment designated Uganda National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST) as the National Designated Entity (NDE) for the Climate Technology Centre Network (CTCN) of the UNFCCC.

As the NDE, we have been able to mobilize and implement substantial technical assistance from the CTCN to support interventions relevant to climate change in the Energy and water sectors. The Technical assistance implemented to date includes the following:

  1. Formulation of Geothermal Energy Policy, Legal and Regulatory Framework in Uganda.
  2. Climate-resilient decision-making methods for Lake Victoria.
  1. Foreign Currency PPA Risk Analysis and Assessment of Local Currency Financing options for Renewable Energy Development in Uganda.
