Climate Change Adaptation in Uganda Fact Sheet
This adaptation fact sheet provides an overview of sector vulnerabilities and adaptation actions for Uganda. Historically, severe weather events, such as droughts and floods, have imposed heavy costs in Uganda. The projected impacts of climate change are likely to add to the toll, potentially undermining further advancements in critical development areas such as food security, water resources management, health, and economic growth. In recognition of this, the Government of Uganda and donor community have initiated activities to determine vulnerability and adaptation priorities, and integrate adaptation considerations into development and sectoral planning. However, adaptation challenges remain, including mainstreaming adaptation into the country’s medium term development framework. Accomplishing these will require addressing challenges regarding data availability and accessibility, as well as a need for strengthened capacity to predict future climate change and measure sector.Find other country and regional climate risk management resources here.
