The project Promoting Implementation of the Paris Agreement (PIPA) in East Africa with a focus on pro-poor low emission development has run since January 2017 in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The intervention is funded by Danida through Civil Society in Development’s (CISU) Fund for Climate and Environment and it is being implemented in a consortia   of Sustainable Environment Development Watch Kenya (SusWatch Kenya), Tanzania Traditional Energy Development Organization (TaTEDO) and Uganda Coalition for Sustainable Development (UCSD)  in partnership with SustainableEnergy (SE) and International Network for Sustainable Energy (INFORSE).
East African Community's member states are among 197 parties which signed the Paris Agreement, paving the way for the global pact to be implemented.
This agreement aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius, above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Agreement also aims at strengthening the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change; through appropriate finance, new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building to support developing countries that are most vulnerable, attain their national objectives. 

Three Civil Society Organization (CSO) in the East Africa Community are implementing this project with the overall objective of contributing to strengthen the pro-poor focus and climate change ambitions in the implementation of the Paris Agreement in East Africa. The project has potential to contribute to higher awareness on the benefits of low emissions investments, development of more ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and LEDSs.

This is envisaged to contribute to more constructive national positions at climate negotiations and other international fora. Implementing this project are; Sustainable Environmental Development Watch (SusWatch Kenya), Tanzania Traditional Energy Development Organization (TaTEDO)and Uganda Coalition for Sustainable Development ( UCSD).
