aBi and Green Growth
aBi embraces a Green growth approach in which all our policies, innovations, and investments aim for sustainable economic growth and development. Internally and through our Implementing Partners, aBi limits greenhouse gas emissions and foster resilience to climate extremes and shocks, by using resources more efficiently, and valuing the often economically invisible natural assets.
aBi’s Green Growth strategy 2021-2025 addresses the key green growth indicators, contributing to the overall Government of Uganda’s Green Growth Development Strategy (UGGDS 2017/18 – 2030/31).
The Goal of aBi GG strategy is: Fostering Sustainable and Equitable Growth of Uganda’s Agriculture and Agribusiness sector.
Key Objectives/Result Areas are:
- Increase agriculture and agribusiness sector resilience to environmental and climate change shocks.
