Decentralized climate change responses in Uganda: climate change adaptation lacks local government funding

Decentralized climate change responses in Uganda: climate change adaptation lacks local government funding

Local governments in Uganda are the most appropriate level for implementing national climate change adaptation and mitigation policies. They provide the best institutional interface between local people’s aspiration and international investments, national policies and civil society initiatives. Yet their contribution is not fully appreciated.
 
Recommendations:
  • strengthen local government funding and capacity for implementing climate change adaptation
  • enhance content and pace of dialogue between national level and meso-level policymakers on climate change adaptation
  • create opportunities for local governments to collaborate in response to the transboundary nature of climate change
  • better understanding of who are vulnerable to climate change and tailor adaptation to their needs
