Uganda: ESIA Follow-up and Energy Transition workshops

23 October 2023

The Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO) and the NCEA built upon their fruitful cooperation under the SRJS programme by organising two back-to-back workshops together. The first one was about improving environmental governance through enhancing the implementation of ESIA conditions and ESMP. The second one was about creating public awareness on the relevance of energy transition, including their environmental and social impacts for Uganda and the region.

The audience consisted of around fifty participants from national and district government, private sector, CSOs, community leaders and representatives. Various partners and institutions contributed to the workshops, such as the Inclusive Green Economy Network-East Africa, the Environmental Compliance Institute in Kenya, and the Zambian Ministry of Energy. It was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and best practices.
