Overview :

The proposed NAMA Support Programme (NSP) is fully embedded in Uganda’s NDC, which is also confirmed in endorsement letters by both the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) and the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE).

This NSP is based on the “Uganda Green Schools NAMA”. As part of integrated sustainable energy solutions for schools in Uganda, the NAMA identified a huge potential for GHG emission reductions through the introduction of Institutional Improved Cook Stoves (IICS). Under this NSP, IICS will be introduced in 15,750 Ugandan schools, which represents 75% of all Ugandan schools.

The main barrier for investments into energy efficiency technologies is the cost of capital in Uganda. At the current Prime Lending Rate of around 25% there is little interest in investigating opportunities and considering investments, especially in a public sector such as education. Therefore, a Revolving Loan Fund will be established to provide financing of investment into IICS. 2 different models are currently considered: provision of capital through the NAMA Facility to the revolving loan fund, which will then give out loans at no/low interest rates to schools or the creation of green funding lines with local/national banks, where the NAMA Facility will cover interest charged by the banks. A decision for one of the models (or a combination) will be taken in the DPP.

The contribution of the NAMA Facility will help to transform the school sector by replacing inefficient cooking facilities with Institutional Improved Cook Stoves (IICS). 75% of the schools will be financed through support of the NAMA Facility, for the remaining schools the Government of Uganda will provide funding.


The objective of the present assignment is to support UNDP as Detailed Design Phase implementer and the MEMD to deliver a NAMA support project proposal for approval by the NAMA Facility.
