Summary

Substantial progress has been made since the inception of the UN SE4ALL initiative in 2011. The Global Action Agenda, a living document setting the initiative’s implementation framework, was published in April 2012. Prior to Rio+20, a number of high level scoping missions led by the EU, UN and WB took place to “early mover” countries to seek their commitment to SE4ALL. According to the UN, more than 50 countries have already committed to the initiative.

The Republic of Uganda was selected as one of the SE4ALL “early movers”.

In May 2012, the EUEI PDF successfully undertook the first SE4ALL Technical Assistance Mission (TAM) in Uganda, building upon the outcome of the European Commission-led High Level Mission that had taken place in April 2012. The mission team, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development of Uganda, its subsidiaries, local private companies, civil society, as well as development partners developed a set of recommendations and a list of potential energy projects to be supported under SE4ALL.

Uganda was the only country in which a Technical Assistance (TA) Mission was held prior to Rio+20.

As a firm commitment and to express further ownership, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Development in Uganda, Hon. Eng. Irene Muloni, attended the RIO+20 to present the outcome of the TAM in Uganda. During her speech at the SE4ALL high level side events in Rio, the Minister made reference to the missions to reiterate Uganda’s commitment to SE4ALL, explicitly highlighting the positive role of EUEI PDF.

Outlining a clear vision for Uganda’s energy sector, the Minister pronounced Uganda “Ready to go” under the SE4ALL Initiative. Since then, Uganda is a best case in the context of countries that have significantly progressed in shaping action agendas and investment prospectus.
