      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      The Fuel Efficiency Initiative focuses on adoption of strategies, policies and regulations to promote ownership and use of cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicle. The use of modern fuel-effective vehicle technologies is intended to reduce CO2 emissions per vehicle. This will be achieved through the development of fuel efficiency policies, along with information dissemination, capacity development and awareness creation that promotes behavioural change and supports markets for fuel-efficient technologies. It will involve also developing a national fuel and vehicle database and toolset.

      A phased approach will be used, where initial information gathering and analysis will contribute to the development of the emissions baseline and reference case, and more accurate measurement of GHG emission in the sector and the impact of the NAMA. Data will have to be generated, gathered and updated. IT is important to note that this data will have a value beyond the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) requirements of the NAMA: detailed and reliable data on transport issues is the key for all kinds of transport policies, regulations and strategies, such as road safety and air quality enhancements. The data and analysis will contribute to the development of the regulatory framework, helping to identify effective and enforceable regulations, as well as and planning in the sector, this analysis would allow the NAMA to strengthen the technical and institutional capacity to develop national greenhouse gas inventories.

      Baseline Studies (250,000)

      Surveys will be conducted to estimate the GHG emissions of the vehicle fleet and build on the Second National Communication. This will provide the BAU scenario and from this provide the basis of monitoring during the implementation of the NAMA.


      Policy and Regulatory Analysis (150,000)

      Studies will be conducted to develop appropriate policies that will facilitate the implementation of the NAMA. Special reference will be made to the UNEP Fuel Efficiency Initiative and other countries implementing similar programmes.

      Capacity Building (30,000)

      Stakeholder Consultations (30,000)

    • G.1Relevant National Policies

      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      National Development Plan:  The NAMA responds to Objective 4 – Promotion of Energy Efficiency in the Energy sector, which is considered one of the Complementary Sectors in the National Development Plan. This NAMA will operationalize the draft Transportation policy that recognizes the importation of old vehicles into the country as a concern for pollution and long-term reduction in value for money.  The NAMA also relates directly to the National Transport policy and the Non-Motorized Transport Policy, both of which have strategies for nationwide improvement of sustainable transportation. This NAMA is in line with the Energy Policy of Uganda (2002), the Renewable Energy Policy of Uganda (2007), the Energy Efficiency Strategy and Plan 2009.

      Links to Climate Change Policy: The NAMA supports Policy Priority No 9Energy, which seeks to promote sustainable energy access and utilisation as a means of sustainable development in the face of uncertainties of climate change. This NAMA also links with the climate change policy transport sector strategies particularly the promotion of modes of transport that take GHG emission reduction into account.

      This NAMA is closely linked to the Periodic Vehicle Maintenance NAMA

      Other relevant Policies:

      • Energy Policy for Uganda, 2002

      -  Recognizes the significant potential for energy efficiency in the transport sector


      • Renewable Energy Policy of Uganda, 2007
      • Energy Efficiency Strategy and Plan, 2009
      • Draft Transportation policy

      -          Recognizes the importation of old vehicles into the country as a concern for pollution and long-term reduction in value for money.

      • Uganda National Climate Change Policy, 2013

      Specific strategies for the transport sector include: i) Promote and encourage reduction of greenhouse emissions from the transport sector; and ii) Establish national standards for emissions and implement strict vehicular emissions standards in tandem with measures to gradually phase out old, inefficient motor vehicles, while encouraging the importation of efficient ones.
