Strategy Drives Resilient City Operations in Africa
"Leading the way in Sub-Sahara Africa, the Kampala Climate Change Action Strategy addresses climate change mitigation and adaptation, starting with the city’s own operations. The foundation of the strategy is the city’s first energy and climate profile, developed in 2015. Under the strategy, the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), the body that governs and oversees city operations, is incorporating energy and climate goals into its policies and services, with plans to build a denser city with improved transit options, cultivate more green space, increase renewable energy usage, improve waste and water management, and implement a green public procurement policy. The ultimate goal is to reduce CO₂ emissions by nearly a quarter over the next 15 years.
In order to achieve the most effective outcomes, KCCA has educated its employees on climate issues, holding more than 15 workshops to date."
