Uganda submits Fuel Efficiency in Motor Vehicles NAMA to UNFCCC

Efficiency is key for everything and everyone should consider this, whatever their goal is.

The country of Uganda has submitted a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) to the UNFCCC NAMA Registry seeking support for preparation. The title of the NAMA is Fuel Efficiency in Motor Vehicles.

Increases in vehicle ownership in Uganda is changing the consumption of fossil fuels in the country and this is impacting on Uganda’s carbon dioxide trajectory in the transport sector.

Uganda lacks an official “approved” national transport policy, meaning that the growth of vehicles is largely unregulated and unplanned manner. A lack of capacity within government and among potential partners to develop a sound policy framework further limits progress in this area. The lack of public acceptance also limits action in this area.

The purpose of this NAMA is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable development in the transport sector through the implementation of a Fuel Efficiency Initiative that includes the development of policies and regulations that will promote the use of more efficient vehicles. The NAMA will help to address the government’s goal of meeting the energy needs of Uganda’s population for social and economic development in an environmentally sustainable manner.

The NAMA would reduce emissions on a per vehicle basis through a Fuel Efficiency Initiative designed to increase fuel efficiency in light- and heavy-duty vehicles. The actions could include:

  • development of a fuel efficiency policy;
  • development of a regulatory framework for vehicle age, vehicle emissions, and fuel standards;
  • vehicle inspection and maintenance;
  • tax incentives to encourage acquisition of more fuel efficient vehicles;
  • fiscal incentives for a vehicle replacement scheme; and
  • a public information campaign.

Reductions in fuel consumption per vehicle will lead to emission reductions from a business as usual (BAU) baseline.

The NAMA is linked to another NAMA: Periodic vehicle inspection for emissions and roadworthiness.
