Clean Technology Fund
Studies confirm that with a very high population growth and a continued dependence on agriculture as a driver of economic growth and livelihoods for its mostly rural populace, Uganda is vulnerable to climate change and land degradation. Productivity in key sectors such as coffee and maize already show signs of being impacted. To mitigate against further declines and to adapt to climate change, aBi integrates green growth in its support to agribusiness in Uganda.
Most agribusinesses in Uganda are constrained in their capacities to adopt green growth measures and this has prompted aBi to extend both technical services and financing to overcome these challenges.
aBi’s Clean Technology Fund has been established to finance sustainable land management initiatives, efficient energy solutions, the use of renewables, environmentally friendly waste management, efficient water use and soil moisture management, and other climate smart practices for the value chains it supports.
