Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA): Integrated Sustainable Energy Solutions for Schools in Uganda

15 Dec 2016

Any NAMA, as a nationally appropriate measure, needs to be both in compliance with existing government policies, strategies and legislation, and also contribute to implementation of objectives of the relevant policies and strategies. The Green Schools NAMA covers several important strategic sectors that are all necessary for achieving sustainable development of the country: education; energy; climate change and environment; health and sanitation. 

The solution proposed by this NAMA is designed with the aim of creating a programme for clean energy solutions dissemination that will enable transformational and sustainable change in the education sector, with positive impacts in the private sector and on people’s livelihoods.

The proposed NAMA will ensure availability of clean cooking (CC) and renewable electricity (RE) technologies to meet the electricity and cooking energy requirements of schools in a sustainable way.

The NAMA baseline scenario consists of two components:

■ GHG baseline; and

■ Sustainable Development baseline.

Setting the baseline scenario allows the impacts arising from the NAMA interventions to be properly assessed and quantified through the monitoring activities described in the Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system.
