CLIMATE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
We are at the core of revealing the impacts of climate change to leaders and the ordinary citizens of Uganda. Our climate impacts research and documentation has supported in telling the Ugandan climate change story across board from local to global.
CAN-U’s core work is on climate change policy and advocacy that is based on solid evidence gathered through cutting edge research. We work through partnerships at local and international level where we draw on a highly experienced human resource to support our research.
In 2015, our high level collaboration with the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), OXFAM and the World Resources Institute (WRI) on Delivery of Adaptation Finance in Uganda: Assessing Institutions at Local Government Levels revealed policy gaps and made recommendations that have shaped the climate finance narrative and policy response in Uganda for a long time.
