"CDKN's flagship project in Uganda - the economic assessment of climate change impacts - has provided an evidence base for investment in climate action in the country." Revocatus Twinomuhangi, CDKN Senior Strategic Advisor, Uganda

CDKN, together with the Makerere University and research partners, shared the results of the ‘Economic Assessment of the Impacts of Climate Change’ study with the Government of Uganda in November 2015. Over the 18-month study, the study team engaged with around 500 stakeholders from the Government and other institutions. Evidence from the study informed Uganda’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the UNFCCC, and is now being used by the government for planning and budgeting purposes, particularly in the agriculture sector. The study results, including a short film, were also showcased at COP21 in Paris. The INDC was prepared using a stakeholder engagement process that raised the profile of climate change in the country amongst Cabinet, Parliament, line Ministries, civil society and private sector. CDKN has supported a project to enhance the resilience of rural populations to a changing climate by improving their access to safe water. The development and testing of a new model has demonstrated how functionality and reliability of water sources can be massively improved for rural communities who adopt a contracted cost-sharing approach to maintenance.
