Hydropower Installation in Uganda

Canada’s Total Contribution: $200,000

Targeted Countries: Uganda

Funding Period: 2010/2011

Project Funded through a Canadian Facility: IFC - Canada Climate Change Program (CCCP)

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

The IFC-Canada Climate Change Programme financed advisory services to support the structuring and development of a 4.4 megawatt (MW) small hydropower plant in the rural West Nile region of Uganda. The project is advising a local company in identifying and selecting, through a competitive bid process, a sponsor that would develop and operate the power plant under a public-private partnership (PPP) agreement.

Results/Expected Outcomes

With support from Canada, this project is expected to mobilize an additional $915,000 in co-financing from public and private sources and lead to an estimated greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 11,000 metric tons of CO2 per year.*

Advisory Services: Solid Waste Sector in Uganda

Canada’s Total Contribution: $250,000

Targeted Countries: Uganda

Funding Period: 2010/2011

Project Funded through a Canadian Facility: IFC - Canada Climate Change Program (CCCP)

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

The IFC-Canada Climate Change Program financed advisory services to assist the Kampala City Council Authority in Uganda in structuring and implementing a public-private partnership (PPP) transaction to manage municipal solid waste in the city of Kampala. Project activities include waste collection, recycling and composting, and landfill operations including closing the existing landfill and constructing a new one.

Results/Expected Outcomes

The successful implementation of the project is expected to result in increased access to solid waste management services for informal settlements in Kampala and a reduction of an estimated 50,000 metric tons of CO2 per year through clean power generation.* In addition, the anticipated waste disposal method, involving turning landfill gas into energy, is expected to increase renewable energy capacity by about 3-5 megawatts (MW), which will be fed into the national grid. The project is also expected to mobilize an additional $1,020,000 in co-financing from other public and private sources.
