Terminal Project Evaluation for Support for Development of Inclusive Markets in Agriculture and Trade (DIMAT) Project.

United Nations Development Programme | Published May 14, 2015  -  Deadline May 27, 2015
cpvs

DEADLINE: 27 May 2015 The agriculture sector in Uganda is characterized by a large number of smallholder producers, where over 80% of farmers operate on plots between 1 and 5 acres. The sector contributes to over 20% of GDP and employs over 70 % of the population. However, over the past decade, the sector’s growth has been below the target of 6% set by the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP). Government of Uganda’s Agriculture Development Strategy and Investment Plan 2010/2015 (DSIP) emphasizes the need to transform the agriculture sector from small-scale production/subsistence agriculture to commercialization, listing 17 priority commodities. The Support for Development of Inclusive Markets in Agriculture and Trade (DIMAT) project aims to contribute to the transformation of the agriculture sector from small-scale production/subsistence agriculture to commercialized production in line with DSIP’s Programme 2 on “Market Access and Value Addition.” The project, which begun in the last quarter of 2011 and ends in June 2015, is intended to improve the competitiveness of markets in selected commodities, namely, cassava, rice and beans, enhancing the participation of low-income smallholder farmers as producers, consumers, employers and employees in the selected value chain. Its objectives is to enable the poorest and most vulnerable segment of the population to actively participate in agricultural value chains so as to increase their income, improve livelihood and build resilience at the household and community level. More specifically, the project is expected to achieve the following outputs: 20 business linkages established and operationalized Capacity of small holder producer groups and Business Support Associations (BSAs) strengthened Innovative pro-poor business concepts developed and operationalized MSME’s access to productive assets (finance, inputs, market information and technology) increased The total project budget is USD 2.6 million funded by UNDP’s core resources. Its implementing partner is Enterprise Uganda and the Responsible Parties are Kilimo Trust, Eastern Private Sector Development Center (EPSEDEC), Acholi Private Sector Development Company Limited (APSEDEC), and Private Sector Development and Consultancy Centre (PRICON). The project has been carrying out activities in Northern, Eastern, Western and Central Uganda.

The Uganda LECB Project is part of the UNDP LECB programme, launched in January 2011 and encompassing 25 participating countries. The programme is funded by the European Commission and the governments of Germany and Australia. In Uganda, the national LECB project (launched March 2012) is implemented by the Climate Change Department of the Ministry of Water & Environment in close coordination with UNDP.  The main work areas are: Development of a national GHG inventory system; Elaboration of eight NAMA concepts in the prioritised sectors of energy, waste, transport and agriculture; Preparation of a low-emission development strategy; and Design of the associated measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems. Throughout 2013 the Uganda LECB project team undertook a range of capacity building and stakeholder consultations that resulted in the elaboration of eight NAMA concepts. During the consultations the stakeholders agreed that the prioritized NAMAs in the transport and agricultural sectors are: Periodic vehicle inspection (Transport) Bus Rapid Transport System (Transport) Enhancement of Soil Carbon Sequestration through Sustainable Land Management Practices (agriculture) Climate smart livestock production in Uganda (agriculture) The two agricultural NAMA concepts were updated in April 2015 with support from an international consultant and through extensive stakeholder consultations. The Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) System NAMA concept builds on an existing feasibility study developed with support from the World Bank. The World Bank agreed to provide a loan for implementation on the condition that the BRT system should be managed by an independent authority. An agreement was never finalized and the project was not implemented. The Periodic Vehicle Inspection NAMA is at an advanced stage and there is political will to push for the implementation. The Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT) is planning to pilot the NAMA in 2016 and it is against this background that a sound MRV system outlining both potential GHG reductions and co-benefits is required. The existing NAMA concepts will be shared on request. The elaboration of the NAMA concepts should be guided by the existing LECB NAMA template. The purpose of the consultancy is to provide technical support to the UNDP LECB project in Uganda by: Elaborating the four NAMA proposals in the Transport and Agricultural Sector and tailor them to the Green Climate Fund requirements (and other relevant sources of finance).

RFP_ Piloting weather based index insurance schemes

United Nations Development Programme | Published September 5, 2014  -  Deadline September 19, 2014
cpvs

Overview: The cattle corridor of Uganda has experienced dramatic land and vegetation degradation driven by a combination of inappropriate land use (agricultural encroachment into reserves) and the weakening of pastoralism as a production system. These are in turn driven by high population growth, high dependence on natural resources coupled with poor resource management, and poor economic development, poverty and more recently climate change. Pastoralism is the main economic activity in the corridor, but crop and charcoal production are also significantly sources of income from utilization of natural resources. The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) with support from United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) is implementing the project "Enabling environment for sustainable land management (SLM) to overcome land degradation in some of Uganda’s Cattle Corridor Districts, namely Kamuli and Nakasongola. The overall goal of the project is Sustainable Land Management providing the basis for economic development, food security and sustainable livelihoods while restoring the ecological integrity of the Cattle Corridor ecosystem. The objective of the project is to provide land users and managers with the enabling policy, institutional and capacity environment for effective adoption of SLM within the complexity of the cattle corridor production system. This objective will be achieved through strengthening the policy, regulatory and institutional frameworks to support sustainable land and charcoal management in the cattle corridor, use of Knowledge as a basis for land use planning and improvement of dry land farming and pastoralism, and, facilitation of Local economic development through diversification and access to finance and insurance. A specific Output 3.2 is targeted at increasing the viability of the cattle corridor production system via access to micro-finance, credits and insurance: This project deliverable was designed to be delivered through three sub-outputs; each focusing on a particular issue namely micro finance; access to credit and agriculture insurance. A Sub-output was therefore developed specifically to ensure that Insurance for livestock and selected crops is piloted in the focus districts of Kamuli and Nakasongola. Under this sub-output the project is to pilot weather index based insurance schemes for both livestock and selected crops. The intention is to facilitate the formulation and piloting of the insurance schemes working out important design issues such as what type of insurance should be offered, whether it should be obligatory, whether premiums should be the same across the whole pilot area or be adapted to localized and so different levels of risk, and what the institutional structure should be to ensure sustainability. This is to enable insurance providers with critical information on which to base the scheme such as researching the frequency and impact of catastrophic events and educating participants about the value of insurance. In particular, the project is to facilitate an insurance service that is designed to minimize the effect of adverse agricultural risks in agricultural production, in particular, extreme weather changes are not yet well developed. The UNDP in partnership with MAAIF is therefore, seeking the services of an insurance company whose assignment will be to pilot a weather based index insurance so that agriculture becomes attractive for financing. The aim of such a company should be to put aside their competitiveness and share the high risks associated with agriculture production by providing insurance cover to the farming communities in Uganda for the promotion of investments in the agricultural sector Through this pilot, the insurance company will define optimal working arrangements to ensure that pastoralists and agriculturalists participate in the pilot index based insurance scheme, and that evidence of feasibility of such an insurance scheme’s potential as means of increasing number of crop and livestock farmers accessing financial and credit services is generated and documented.

The Project “Supporting Developing Countries to Integrate Agriculture Sectors into National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag)” is Directly implemented by UNDP and FAO in Uganda and 7 other countries. The project has goal of integrating climate change concerns related to agriculture-based livelihoods within existing national planning and budgeting processes of the selected countries. The integration of adaptation options in planning frameworks and budgets is expected to contribute to the enhancement of:Institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the agricultural sector;Access to international financing opportunities, such as the climate finance sources from GEF and Green Climate Fund; andMore strategic allocations of national budgets earmarked for adaptation investments;The results and processes used will be highly relevant to inform other sectors of good practices in integrating adaptation needs into national planning and budgeting;Lessons and experiences from the other 7 countries where similar interventions are being implemented. The Uganda component of the three-year program in is supported by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment’s (BMUB) and International Climate Initiative (IKI); with USD$700,000 earmarked to support interventions. This project responds to UNFCCC conclusions that invited UN organizations, specialized agencies, and bilateral organizations to enhance financial and technical support to the NAP process for developing countries. Through the NAP-Ag project, FAO and UNDP will extend technical assistance to the Government of Uganda and other partners in developing and implementing a National Adaptation Plan (NAP) for the Agriculture Sector.The NAP process in Uganda will build on previous government responses to climate challenges, such as developing the National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) in 2007. The NAPAs were considered as immediate interventions that have to be implemented in response to climate change challenges. Priority interventions were identified by agricultural stakeholders in the country, to cushion the country from climate change impacts and effects. The NAPA projects were implemented and have provided lessons that can be used for development and implementation of NAPs process.Results of this consultancy shall contribute to Outcome 4 - Advocacy and knowledge-sharing on NAPs promoted and to Output 4.1 Convened exchanges on science and technology and economics of adaptation to support the integration of adaptation options into national investment plans managed. The target will be use the information to Sensitize technical staff and public service providers on the work that government is already doing, review existing materials and develop awareness and training materials to address the knowledge gaps on NAPs, NAPAs and the NAP process, Conduct cost benefit analyses for the different interventions in NAPA projects.?Objective:To create awareness on what government and other partners are already doing on Climate change adaptation and Mitigation in order to build national capacities for management of climate change adaptation, particularly including documentation of lessons learned from the NAPA pilots.

Mt Elgon landscape presents a variety of ecosystems providing services upon which local population heavily depends. A large portion of the landscape is now degraded, considering current changes in land use due to expansion of agriculture fields and human settlements, largely driven by high population growth. There is also increasing pressure on the land to accommodate a population that is still rising in the Mt Elgon region and the inherent danger is that this increasing pressure for land will impact negatively on land use, such as a) causing trees to be cut for fuel wood before maturing and b) increase encroachment into the upper protected watersheds c) increased land fragmentation d) increased soil erosion.There is limited knowledge on how to implement Sustainable Land Management (SLM) sustainable forest management (SFM) and climate change mitigation (CCM). There is also limited access to extension services, limited or no innovation in land use management, and no incentives to improve land use practices. Non-application of sustainable land use practices is driven by limited ‘knowhow’ and technical capabilities to do so. There is a need to demonstrate how this can be done in practice but such demonstration has not been yet available in the Mount Elgon landscape.The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) with support from United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) is implementing the project “Integrated Landscape Management for Ecosystem Resilience and Improved Livelihoods in the Mt. Elgon Region” in the districts of Mbale, Bulambuli and Manafa. The overall goal of the project is to empower communities in Mt Elgon to manage their production landscapes in an integrated manner for improved livelihoods and ecosystem resilience.Objective of assignment:Overall the assignment is to develop a realistic soil erosion monitoring and assessment system at FFS and landscape levels in the Mt Elgon ILM region that the farmers and their facilitators can use including the description of roles and responsibilities of key actors in Mbale, Bulambuli and Manafa Districts.The project stakeholders include farmers, in this case particularly farmers adopting SLM, who are the direct beneficiaries, government agencies namely: The 3 DLGs, MWE, MLHUD, NARO,

Furthermore, it should be noted that women play a dominant role in land management even though they have limited control and access to knowledge and capacity building opportunities. With entire communities engaged in unsustainable utilization of natural resources, it is imperative that again entire communities’ capacities are built to work together to restore and to sustainably use the available resources. This was the basis for the selection of a landscape approach to resource management in this area, which needs to be coupled with farmer field schools approach to increase sustainability and ownership of the interventions.As such the Ministry, would like to engage a Ugandan Farmer Field Schools(FFS) trainer to facilitate project activities in Mbale District. The objective of the assignment is to pilot the Farmer field school approach to achieve sustainable landscape management and development of community resilience to environmental shocks.The stakeholders to be involved will include farmers, Local community Leaders, CBOs, Local NGOs, Farmer Based Organizations and extension workers.
