This Policy Brief is based on the Uganda 100% Renewable Energy Scenario and Plan by 2050 prepared by Uganda Coalition for Sustainable Development and the International Network for Sustainable Energy (INFORSE) as part of the East African Civil Society for Sustainable Energy and Climate Action (2019 -22).
Members and Partners to the International Network for Sustainable Energy (INFORSE) in Uganda that convened on September 28, 2022 at Grand Global Hotel in Kampala, identified the following issues and made proposals ahead of three key events namely: The Global Green Growth Week (GGGWeek2022) due to take place from October 23 to 28, 2022; The Uganda Renewable Energy Conference 2022 (REC22) & EXPO due to take place from 3 – 5 November 2022 in Kampala; and the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP27), to be held from 6 to 18 November 2022 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt) based on their various work experiences across the Country.
Call to Action: Walking and Cycling as Sustainable Mobility Options for the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area Africa is the least safe place to walk and cycle in the world as 261pedestrians and 18 cyclists are killed every day (UN Habitat, 2022). The consistent lack of essential infrastructure makes the experience of walking and cycling difficult, unpleasant, and incredibly dangerous.
