GET FiT Uganda

Author: Stephanie Rieger

Stephanie Rieger works for KfW in Uganda. Her essay focuses on how the GET FiT Programs assist African nations in pursuing a climate resilient low-carbon development path resulting in growth, poverty reduction and climate change mitigation. The Program, which has been jointly developed by the Government of Uganda, ERA and KfW, is designed to leverage private investment into renewable energy generation projects in Uganda. In Uganda, GET FiT intends to fast-track a portfolio of about 20-25 small-scale renewable energy generation projects promoted by private developers to sustainably transform Uganda’s energy mix over the next 3 to 5 years.
