Comparing fdi and cdm l.jpg
Comparing FDI and CDM

  • Just as is done in FDI, projects under CDM sectors

  • (Energy, Forestry, Agriculture, Waste Magt, Transport)

  • are promoted using the same techniques but

  • emphasizing more on their importance- enabling

  • emission reduction to facilitate curbing climate change.

  • CDM is a Subset of FDI due to use of the same

  • Promotional techniques

  • CDM projects also need the approval of UIA

  • CDM Projects also carry out EIA.

  • CDM projects need secondary approvals e.g. from

  • a DNA just like in any other FDI project which needs

  • an approval from a line Lead Agency. – Currently

  • Uganda does not have a DNA but has a focal point

  • office-The Meteorology Dept.


Slide24 l.jpg

  • Comparing FDI and CDM Contd:

  • The Focal Point Office- Meteorology Dept. apart

  • from its staff draws Expertise from: Ministry of

  • Energy, Forestry Dept., NEMA

  • UIA could be a member of the DNA once it is place

  • to handle the promotion with experts drawn from the

  • Meteorology Dept. to handle GHG aspect.


Slide25 l.jpg

  • Strengthening smooth running and quick approvals

  • Of CDM Projects:

  • Make the body that is responsible for FDI e.g. UIA

  • be the secretariat of DNA so as to coordinate all

  • issues concerning CDM.

  • Reason:

  • - UIA has a good network with other bodies from which

  • it can easily draw expertise to appraise a CDM project

  • proposal with reduced bureaucracy more so if it had

  • a hand in attracting this investment.

  • Confidentiality:

  • The confidentiality that applies to any FDI applies to

  • a CDM project since the officers handling are bound by

  • the OATH of Secrecy.
