Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has partnered with the Government of Uganda to undertake a three-year project funded by the European Union, titled Greening Uganda’s Urbanization, and industrialization to support the implementation of green interventions including urbanization, waste management, and industrialization among others.
To unlock investment opportunities along the oil waste value chain, a detailed study was commissioned in June 2022 and a consultant was hired. The consultant made consultations with the government and other stakeholders in the oil value chain (transporters, generators, processors, regulators, end users, storage, and disposers) from which an analysis report was drafted. Coverage of the value chain study included the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area, the Cities of Mbarara, and Gulu.
A value chain analysis report was prepared to identify waste oil flows, key players, investment opportunities, and policy gaps, and the same was presented on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at Golden Tulip, Kampala city to discuss these opportunities. The report highlighted the ongoing developments and interventions within the sector, gaps, case studies on best practices, a profile of investment opportunities, and a draft action plan.
