Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting

Insights from Uganda - a market brief

This market brief is an output of the Technology, Markets and Investment for Low-Carbon and Climate resilient Development (TEMARIN) project, that is carried out in two African countries, namely Kenya and Uganda. The project is funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is implemented by the UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre. It aims to support countries in accelerating the transfer, diffusion and uptake of specific climate technologies. The project focus is on strengthening domestic markets for climate technologies, removing bottlenecks for domestic firms operating in these markets and increasing cooperation among private, public and international actors to build global and national partnerships for upscaling implementation.

This market brief contributes to the project’s overall aim by undertaking a detailed scoping and analysis of the contemporary state of rooftop rainwater harvesting (RRWH) in Uganda. It provides an analysis of the respective socio-economic conditions as well as the enabling environment, policies and support structures that are involved in the diffusion of the technology. Further, it investigates the key drivers and determining factors that determine the uptake of the technology. The brief provides empirical insights into the Ugandan RRWH market and the regime it operates in, as well as current barriers to the further uptake of the technology.
