Government of Uganda places high priority in accessing climate finance to assist in addressing its climate change adaptation and mitigation funding needs as articulated in the Nationally Determined Commitments (NDCs). Uganda’s growing body of policies and strategic plans such as the Vision 2040 strategy and the Second National Development Plan 2015/16- 2019/20 demonstrates the commitment of the Government to ready the country to adapt to and mitigate climate change.
