The Collaborative Instruments for Ambitious Climate Action (CI-ACA) initiative aims at assisting countries in the development of domestic climate policies instruments such as carbon markets, carbon taxes, and other emission reduction instruments with strong monitoring, reporting and verification components. As part of this initiative, RCC Kampala (with the support of the Global Carbon Market Uganda team) is conducting a carbon pricing study which includes a broader assessment of the current carbon pricing mechanisms such as carbon tax and cap-and-trade, as well as a hybrid system such as the South African system. The study also includes country chapters on Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Mauritius and assesses their activities and carbon pricing potential. The study is still ongoing and will presumably be completed by mid 2019.
