GGGI Signs MOU With Green Building Council Uganda To Boost Four Secondary Cities’ Dev’t

GGGI Uganda and the Green Building Council (GBC) signed an MOU on Cooperation for Green City Development under a project intended to Green Uganda’s Urbanization and Industrialization in four secondary cities. These are Arua, Gulu, Mbarara and Jinja, all of which have significant development challenges.

In particular, the MoU seeks to support the incorporation of green building standards in the National Building Code. Once done, dissemination material is to be produced. Finally, GBC is to provide training to key stakeholders in not only the four secondary cities but also, the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA).

A recent mission to the four cities, in part, to introduce, city council technical and political leaders to the green development agenda, revealed that less than 40 percent of building construction goes through the official decision-making process. As such, this MoU will both ‘green’ the National Building Code and increase the level of awareness to seek consent to build.
