      A.3Description of mitigation action

      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      The purpose of this NAMA is to improve the efficiency of public transport, by moving commuters from private vehicles to public transportation to address both traffic and pollution problems. The NAMA will reduce transport emissions in the Kampala metropolitan region from a business as usual baseline. 

      Kampala is expected to experience rapid population growth over the next 15 years, which will be accompanied by high levels of urbanization and motorization. Kampala lacks an integrated and affordable public transport system, with most public transport trips taken by 14-seat minibuses (matatus). This NAMA will assist Uganda in planning, developing and financing a coordinated urban transportation system around design of routes, linkage between the BRT routes and other modes of transport, facilities and resources to increase ridership, operational mechanisms of efficiency such as scheduling, on time repairs, maintenance, buses, pricing, park and ride facilities.

      The activities of the NAMA include building 9 routes of the BRT, non-motorised transport (NMT) routes linked to the bus routes, park and ride facilities, programming and scheduling buses along the routes, and ensuring systems for operational efficiency.

      Links to National Development Plan:  This NAMA will support national goals to: i) improve the stock and quality of economic infrastructure, and ii) encourage the sustainable use of the environment and natural resources. The NAMA also relates directly to National Transport policy and the Non-Motorized Transport Policy both of which have strategies for nationwide improvement of sustainable transportation.


      Links to Climate Change Policy: The NAMA addresses the main goal of the National Climate Change Policy of 2013 and specifically the objective of integrating climate change in planning, decision making and investments as well as the objective to develop and implement appropriate climate change mitigation strategies. This NAMA also links with the climate change policy transport sector strategies particularly the promotion of modes of transport that take GHG emissions reduction into account, integration of risk assessment on transport infrastructure as well as building climate resilient transportation infrastructure at national level.
