Abstract: Uganda is a signatory to several international conventions and agreements on climate change. Provision of energy is also a national priority. This paper looks at how Uganda is attempting to increase accessibility of modern energy in the rural areas within the context of international climate change agreements. A case study of the West Nile Hydropower Power project, in which the high and unattractive investments in a 3.5 MW hydropower plant to replace inefficient gensets is reformulated as a CDM project with a projected emission reduction of two million tons of CO2. This reduced investment costs and leveraged its profitability.
