RFP: Firm to provide training/capacity development in entrepreneurship, effective business development and management for briquette making groups in four districts

UNDP Country Office - UGANDA | Published June 1, 2017  -  Deadline June 27, 2017

Charcoal is the preferred cooking energy in Uganda because of a variety of reasons. Notwithstanding its popularity, the charcoal sub-sector remains plagued by inefficient production practices, lack of sustainable supplies of woody biomass and inadequate, often conflicting, policy statements. To address the barriers that impede sustainable charcoal production, the Government of Uganda is, with support from UNDP Green Environment Facility (UNDP-GEF) implementing a project: Addressing Barriers to Adoption of Improved Charcoal Production Technologies and Sustainable Land Practices through an Integrated Approach (Green Charcoal Project).The objective of the USD 3,480,000 project is to secure multiple environmental benefits by addressing the twin challenges of unsustainable utilization of fuel wood (including charcoal) and poor land management practices common in Uganda’s woodlands through technology transfer, enhancement of the national policy framework and promotion of Sustainable Land Management (SLM) and Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) practices. The project involves piloting low carbon emission sustainable charcoal technologies and broader sustainable land and forest management practices in four districts: Mubende, Kiboga, Nakaseke and Kiryandongo.In 2016 the project supported the formation and registration of 24 Charcoal Associations in the districts of Mubende, Nakaseke, Kiboga and Kiryandongo. However, most of the associations lack skills on how to manage their businesses in a productive/progressive and sustainable manner. Equally important is the need for ensuring quality assurance in the entire charcoal value chain to effectively compete in the market. To address these gaps, the project is seeking the services of a competent firm to provide capacity building and skills development for the charcoal associations to enhance their capacity in managing their processes in a sound business framework. The firm will also produce training manual, IEC awareness materials and link the producers to local financing institutions for their businesses and potential markets.UNDP Uganda kindly requests the submission of proposals for \"RFP - Firm to provide training/capacity development in entrepreneurship, effective business development and management for briquette making groups in four districts as per the detailed requirements of this RFP (attached as PDF document). When preparing your proposal, please be guided by the form attached hereto as Annex 2 of which a Microsoft Word copy is attached for you convenience.Proposals may be submitted on or before 27 June 2017 at 04.00 pm by following the submission instructions detailed in the solicitation document (RFP).

Assessment of the Market and Organizational capacity of Payments Aggregators in Uganda (Multiple Service providers)

UNCDF - UGANDA | Published April 18, 2017  -  Deadline May 5, 2017
cpvs

Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P) With support from the Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (“DFAT” formerly AusAid) and by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), UNCDF launched Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P) in March 2012, a global thematic initiative to address the opportunities and challenges of implementing branchless banking and mobile money in challenging markets in Africa and Asia. MM4P’s long-term mission is to help low income and rural households in LDCs increase their financial security through appropriate, affordable and secure means to receive, manage and save money through these “digital financial services” (DFS). To do so, its intermediate goal is to help build inclusive digital financial sectors such that a wide range of digital financial services are provided responsibly, and at reasonable cost, by sustainable institutions in a well-regulated environment. This combines a making markets work for the poor approach with UNCDF’s traditional operational model of directly supporting the most crucial level – retail service providers. UNCDF is currently implementing this in eight countries (Laos, Nepal, Liberia, Malawi, Senegal, Benin, Zambia and Uganda). With its programme management unit in Brussels, Belgium, UNCDF has placed technical teams in each of the focus countries of the programme.In partnership and with financing from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF or “the Foundation”) UNCDF started in Uganda in 2014. Having completed many initial stages of the programme around awareness raising, research, strategy and business planning, the work has narrowed to several crucial areas which are focused on reaching women and rural areas. The identified interventions over the next few years include: digitization of bulk payments (agricultural value chains, social welfare, education and potentially energy); agency banking; a few policymaker and regulator support efforts. This is done through direct technical assistance and grants DF providers, NGOs, agriculture companies, etc. as well as working with the government. The mobile money industry in Uganda is steadily growing beyond basic money transfer services, with products like Mobile credit and savings and other value added services. Equally, the models and partnerships needed to deliver the new products and services are evolving, requiring stronger and innovative ecosystem players to enable and steer the innovations on the mobile money platform.Payment aggregators, as ecosystem intermediaries, have the potential to enhance industry growth as they develop and maintain the platforms necessary to process the growing number of bulk and merchant payments. They also play an important role in customer acquisition and retention allowing the telecoms to use their infrastructure more efficiently. As important players in the ecosystem, aggregators therefore need to grow organizationally to keep up with the pace of the industry, while remaining effective and sustainable businesses.UNCDF / MM4P, in recognition of the above, is commissioning two assignments to undertake an assessment of (1) the state of the market for payment aggregator business in Uganda; (2) an organizational capacity assessment of 3 specific aggregators. Results from this assignment will allow UNCDF to work with the specific aggregators to undertake the required enhancements for organizational change and business sustainability. Scope of work:1. Assessment of the state of the market (External)· Assessment of the business environment for aggregator business in Uganda (including, socio– economic environment, policy and regulatory aspects, etc)· Undertake a market sizing and gap analysis, considering the market trends of the industry· Assessment of the level of competition in the industry2. Assessment of the organizational capacity of the aggregators (internal)· Undertake a SWOT analysis of the aggregator· Undertake a critical analysis of the business model run by the aggregator· Assessment of the internal competencies of the aggregator (e.g. Finance, ICT infrastructure, Human, Operations, Management/Leadership, Legal/Compliance (e.g. AML/CTF) etc)· Assessment of organizational aspects of governance, structure, processes, risks, etc.3. Recommendations on a strategic roadmap and concrete interventions to take in line with findingsDeliverables: · An inception report showing detailed methodology, work plan, and timelines - to be shared and discussed within the first 5 days of the assignment· A consolidated report of findings on the State of the Market and the Organisational Capacity assessment· A proposed capacity building and change management plan for the aggregator· Proposed key business model enhancements and associated investments required· Develop an Investor pitch book for the aggregator· Workshop with management of the aggregator to discuss assignment findings and proposed actions. Proposals may be submitted on or before 5 May 2017 and via email to mm4p@uncdf.org, using the following email subject: Assessment of the Market and Organizational capacity of Payments Aggregators in Uganda’.Please note that the response email cannot exceed 10MB. Your Technical and Financial Proposal must be expressed in English and valid for a minimum period of 12 months.

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

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.

Overview : The Government of Uganda launched a Peace Recovery and Development Plan (PRDP) which commenced implementation in July 2009 and is now in a second phase running until June 2015. The main objective of PRDP2 is to complete the post-conflict recovery process; to strengthen the foundation for development in Northern Uganda and to narrow the gap between Northern Uganda and the national average level of all socio-economic indicators. In this context, and building on its previous engagements in Northern Uganda, UNDP continues support of PRDP2 through various projects including the Local Development and Social Cohesion in Northern Uganda Project that commenced in July 2013. The Local Development and Social Cohesion in Northern Uganda Project is aimed at contributing to social and economic stabilization through  four outputs namely; 1-Community justice, security and social cohesion increased for peaceful resolution of disputes, in particular as related to land and women’s issues; 2-Employment opportunities enhanced and economic recovery and reintegration initiatives developed targeting youth, crises-affected and vulnerable people; 3- Peaceful and sustainable mining in Northern Uganda; and 4- Capacities of local authorities and civil society strengthened in civic engagement, coordination, and planning  for economic recovery and peace consolidation. One of the planned interventions in 2015 is to enhance rural livelihoods of youth and women groups from Northern Uganda and develop markets for their products. This intervention will enhance rural livelihoods diversification and create employment opportunities for youth, women, and other vulnerable people. In order to implement the above mentioned project intervention, UNDP Uganda would like to collaborate with a competent local/national or International Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Civil Society Organization (CSO), Private Firm and institution. B. Objective of the assignment The main objective of this assignment is to implement the specific project intervention of enhance rural livelihoods of youth and women groups from Northern Uganda and develop markets for their products. This intervention will build on previous engagements where a foundation has been laid in supporting targeted communities in agricultural livelihoods, training of youth in basic business skills, initiating market linkages in a value chain approach to support farmers sell their products have been implemented. In view of the lessons learned, this intervention will take into consideration the fact that Community members are still weak in identifying the economic opportunities opening around them, still significant time is wasted on non-productive activities. The focus will be to further engage community members including rural women and youth to be more productive.

International/National Consultant to provide impact evaluation design and baseline study for UNDP's Emergency Response and Resilience Strategy for Refugees and Host Communities

Uganda Country Office - UGANDA | Published April 13, 2017  -  Deadline April 21, 2017

Since December 2013, Uganda has been receiving a rapidly growing number of South Sudanese refugees. Following an outbreak of violence in Juba in July 2016, 400,515 new South Sudanese refugees arrived in Uganda between 1 July 2016 and 30 December 2016, with over 84% women and children. The total number of refugees in Uganda has now exceed one million.The Government of Uganda opened a new settlement ‘Bidibidi’ in Yumbe District in August 2016. The settlement is now home to over 270,000 people and is now one of the largest refugee ‘camp/settlement’ in the world. It has reached beyond its maximum capacities. The West Nile sub-region, where Yumbe district is located, is one of the poorest, least developed regions in Uganda, marginalized for decades. Yumbe district already had very limited services and community infrastructure before the arrival of refugees, with limited to no connection to grid electricity.The impact for Uganda’s host communities is significant given that refugees are settled in settlements as opposed to camps. There is high competition over access to livelihoods opportunities, water, firewood, land and basic services, albeit largely unquantified at present.Perspectives for the return of refugees is limited and the Government of Uganda is preparing for the large majority of the refugees to stay and settle. There is therefore a critical need for investments in permanent community infrastructure and the creation of support to livelihoods opportunities, for both refugees and host community members.In light of this situation, UNDP Uganda has developed an Emergency Response and Resilience Strategy for Refugees and Host Communities (2017-2020). Key components of the strategy include: 1) emergency livelihoods and economic recovery; 2) protection against sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) including legal aid, access to justice and psycho-social support; and 3) strengthen core government function.The emergency livelihoods and economic recovery component will adopt UNDP’s 3x6 Approach, which has been developed in line with the UN Policy for Post-Conflict Employment Creation, Income Generation and Reintegration’s (2009) three-track approach. The 3x6 approach will create emergency livelihoods through cash for work, support cash for work participants to save and jointly invest in micro-enterprises, and sustain their enterprises through business skill development and access to market.Objective of the consultancy:Design an evaluation methodology to measure the impact of UNDP’s emergency livelihoods and economic recovery intervention, collect baseline information, and summarize the findings into a baselines study.

International/National Consultant to support delivery of 4 Regional Training Workshops on Environment, Community, Health and Safety in the Development Minerals sector

The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme is a three-year, €13.1 million capacity building program that aims to build the profile, and improve the management, of Development Minerals (industrial minerals; construction materials; dimension stones; and semi-precious stones). The program is an initiative of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States, financed by the European Union and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and implemented by UNDP.The mining of Development Minerals has important implications for sustainable development, however, they have to date received inadequate attention for their potential to impact livelihoods; and few development programmes have provided support for this mining sub-sector. Often referred to as Low Value Minerals and Materials (LVMM) due to their low price as a function of their weight, and their relatively low value to international commodity markets, Development Minerals provide crucial inputs for domestic economic development (infrastructure, manufacturing, construction and agriculture to name a few) and have the potential to be high value in terms of national development. In comparison to the metals sector, Development Minerals have closer links with the local economy, and have the potential to generate more local jobs, with a greater impact on poverty reduction. This is partly because the sector is dominated by small and medium scale domestic businesses. However, the income generation potential of the sector often remains unrealized or under-realized. This is in part due to the uncertain legal and regulatory framework in which the sector operates and the lack of publicly available and easily accessible geological data, which exacerbates wasteful exploration and discourages investment in the sector. Furthermore, there can be significant social and environmental impacts associated with the mining of Development Minerals, with consequences on health and safety of workers in this sector and surrounding communities.The ACP-EU Development Minerals programme is implemented at the regional level (with participants from forty countries) and at the country level (focus countries include: Cameroon, Central Africa; Guinea – Conakry, West Africa; Uganda, East Africa; Zambia, Southern Africa; Jamaica, Caribbean; and Fiji, Pacific). At the regional level, the programme will conduct training activities. At the country level, it will include both training and other activities, such as small grants and partnerships to produce maps and databases on low-value minerals, development of regulations on environment and safety, organizing community engagement, addressing grievances, organizations of technology fairs and networking events, organization of public-private dialogues etc. The thematic areas of the programme activities are: 1) mine and quarry management; 2) environment, health and safety; 3) entrepreneurship skills; 4) market analysis and investment promotion; 5) geo-data and maps design; 6) community relations and addressing grievances.The project uses UNDP’s capacity development approach. The key stakeholders will include public stakeholders such as regulatory agencies and local governments; private stakeholders such as small-scale mining enterprises and associations, business development centers; and social stakeholders such as civil society organizations and community groups.

The project will include the following components: Component 1: On-grid Energy Access (US$144.6million) This component covers on-grid investments to be implemented by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA). 1-1.            Grid Extension and Associated Connections (US$99.2 million: US$80 million IDA, US$19.2 millionGoU). This sub-component includes the construction of 21 distribution grid extension projects that span over 1,800 km andassociated connections. These lines have been identified as priority investment for expanding rural access by the Government andwere selected based on the Indicative Rural Electrification Master Plan (IREMP). The project will fund household connections andbasic wiring methods (ready boards) associated with the sub-component to alleviate consumer affordability barriers. Householdconsumers whose connection and internal wiring costs are prefunded by the project will be required to repay, in installments, thefull costsover a period agreed with GoU/REA. The project will not fund last-mile connections for commercial and industrialcustomers. 1-2. Grid Intensification and Associated Connections(US$29.5 million). This sub-component includes short extensions to the medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) network andassociated connections to potential customers who are relatively close to the existing grid. The implementationof the sub-componentwill be through: (i) turnkey contracts for both extensions and connections implemented by REA on behalf of the ServiceProviders(SPs); and (ii) framework contracts between REA and SPs allowing SPs to identify, package, and implement extensions and connectionsin their respective networks. 1-3. Household Connections from Existing Lines (US$10 million). Thissub-component will finance "last-mile" connections and basic low-cost internal wiring for household consumers along the existingdistribution network, not covered under sub-components 1-1 and 1-2. Both sub-components 1-1 and 1-2 will extend theLV network  to reach potential customers. This sub-component, in contrast, will finance customerswithin the "no pole connections" distance (i.e. within 35 meters that can be covered by service connection cables) from theexisting network. 1-4. Implementation Support for On-grid Energy Access (US$5.9 million). Thissub-component will support the implementation of on-grid energy access activities. It includes planning, coordination, andimplementation support for REA, construction supervision, consumer sensitization and mobilization, independent verification ofconnections, and capacity development for REA to strengthen its oversight roles in rural electrification. Some of thesupportprovided to REA will also support the initial capacity building needsfor SPs to accelerate access scale-up.

This component will finance necessary consultancy services, capacity buildingactivities, and operations costs. The componentwill be implemented by several implementing agencies?Ministry of Health (MoH),Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE), Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS), PSFU, and UECCC?under thecoordination of the Project Coordination Unit (PCU) within MEMD. 2-1. Institutional Solar PV Systems (US$11million).  This sub-component will support provision of solar PV systems forpost-primary schools, health clinics, and water stations in rural growth centers. MoH, MoWE, and MoESTS will be the executingagencies. 2-2. Business Development Support for Rural Access (US$1.5 million).This sub-component includes the following activities: (i) business development support for private contractors, electricians,and wiremen; (ii) promotion of organization and self-regulation among the solar business; and (iii) provision of electricity forisolated areas through pico-hydro schemes. The Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) will implement thiscomponent and willfacilitate the activities in rural areas to fostercommunity-based schemes to expand access. 2-3. FinancialIntermediation for Rural Access (US$11.5 million:This sub-component will provide credit line and guarantee instruments through Uganda Energy Credit Capitalization Company Ltd(UECCC) to Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) to facilitate consumer financing needs and working capital for solarbusinesses supporting off-grid access. It also includes technical assistance to strengthen UECCC,[1] the implementing agency of thissub-component. UECCC is expected to provide a solar refinance facility and aworking capital support facility to PFIs foron-lending. The working capital support primarily targets the solar companies providing consumer financing through pay-as-you-go orsimilar arrangements. The consumer refinance primarily targets end users who purchase solar systems oncash-basis. A partial riskguarantee instrument will also be designedto be offered to PFIs to partially cover their credit risk related totheir lending tosolar companies. 2-4. Quality Assurance for Solar Market Development (US$1 million).This sub-component aims to promote quality assurance and awareness of solar products so as to enable the market for affordable,high-quality PV productsin rural areas. Support provided to complement market activities willbe in the form of: (i) publicawareness campaigns to inform consumersof the benefits of solar lighting products and to educate consumers on the characteristicsof good quality products; and (ii) strengtheningof the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) and the National QualityAssurance framework[2]for PV systems in order to curtail the inflow of cheap, low quality systems. This sub-component will be implemented by REA incollaboration with the UNBS. Component 3: Institutional Strengthening and Impacts Monitoring(US$5.6 million) This component will finance technical assistance and capacity development required to accelerate electricityaccess. It will also support the Government to carry out an Impact Monitoring and Evaluation of the ERT-2.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND RESILIENCE STRATEGY FOR REFUGEES AND HOST COMMUNITIES

UNDP Uganda Country Office - UGANDA | Published February 24, 2017  -  Deadline March 24, 2017
cpvs

Since the outbreak of civil war in South Sudan in 2013, Uganda has been experiencing increasing numbers of refugees in districts across West Nile, Northern Uganda. According to UNHCR, the registered number of refugees from South Sudan since 1 January 2016 has reached 522,979 (86% women and children), accounting for over half of the one million refugees Uganda is hosting. In light of the deteriorating security situation in South Sudan, further influx of refugees to Uganda is expected. Bidibidi settlement, Yumbe districts was opened in August 2016 to reduce the strain on Adjumani settlements. Bidibidi has now reached its maximum capacity, hosting more than 272,000 refugees. The Government is now settling refugees in Palorinya settlement, Moyo district, with plans to open additional settlements. Due to the protracted nature of the crisis in South Sudan, there is a need for a shift in the traditional ‘care and maintenance’ approach to one that enables both refugees and their host communities to build resilience and improve self-reliance. Moreover, the South Sudanese influx presents increasing social, economic and environmental pressures on host communities that, unless addressed through innovative and targeted support, could result in conflict and instability thereby undermining Uganda’s international-recognized refugee hosting model. In response, the UNDP Emergency Response and Resilience Strategy for Refugees and Host Communities project, based on the Refugee and Host Population Empowerment (ReHoPE) framework and in line with Uganda’s second National Development Plan and related Settlement Transformation Agenda, seeks to strengthen the resilience of refugees, host community members, district local government and relevant national institutions to cope with and recover from the impact of the large influx of South Sudanese refugees. The aim is to provide emergency support, while investing in existing national and local systems to ensure they can adequately serve both host and refugee communities. Specifically, the project focuses on: emergency livelihoods and economic recovery: disaster risk and climate change sensitive jobs and livelihoods for refugees and host communities, focusing on women and youth (including cash for work, small grants, vocational and business skills training and value chain development); protection: legal aid, access to justice and psycho-social support for survivors of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV); and strengthen core government functions: strengthening of relevant national and local level government capacity to cope with and respond to influx of the refugees and to ensure a resilience based development approach is mainstream across the overall response from the start. Component 1 of the project, ‘emergency livelihoods and economic recovery’, provides cash for work, specifically focused on women and youth, targeting 70% refugees and 30% host communities, in line the Government of Uganda’s directive ensuring that 30% of assistance services, where appropriate and feasible, benefit the host community, which in turn sustains and expands the asylum space. In order to implement the above mentioned project intervention in Palorinya settlement, Moyo district, UNDP Uganda would like to procure a competent a Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), firms and institutions.

Emergency Livelihoods (Cash for Work) in Yumbe District, Northern Uganda

UNDP Uganda Country Office - UGANDA | Published February 24, 2017  -  Deadline March 24, 2017
cpvs

A. Background Since the outbreak of civil war in South Sudan in 2013, Uganda has been experiencing increasing numbers of refugees in districts across West Nile, Northern Uganda. According to UNHCR, the registered number of refugees from South Sudan since 1 January 2016 has reached 522,979 (86% women and children), accounting for over half of the one million refugees Uganda is hosting. In light of the deteriorating security situation in South Sudan, further influx of refugees to Uganda is expected. Bidibidi settlement, Yumbe districts was opened in August 2016 to reduce the strain on Adjumani settlements. Bidibidi has now reached its maximum capacity, hosting more than 272,000 refugees. The Government is now settling refugees in Palorinya settlement, Moyo district, with plans to open additional settlements. Due to the protracted nature of the crisis in South Sudan, there is a need for a shift in the traditional ‘care and maintenance’ approach to one that enables both refugees and their host communities to build resilience and improve self-reliance. Moreover, the South Sudanese influx presents increasing social, economic and environmental pressures on host communities that, unless addressed through innovative and targeted support, could result in conflict and instability thereby undermining Uganda’s international-recognized refugee hosting model. In response, the UNDP Emergency Response and Resilience Strategy for Refugees and Host Communities project, based on the Refugee and Host Population Empowerment (ReHoPE) framework and in line with Uganda’s second National Development Plan and related Settlement Transformation Agenda, seeks to strengthen the resilience of refugees, host community members, district local government and relevant national institutions to cope with and recover from the impact of the large influx of South Sudanese refugees. The aim is to provide emergency support, while investing in existing national and local systems to ensure they can adequately serve both host and refugee communities. Specifically, the project focuses on: emergency livelihoods and economic recovery: disaster risk and climate change sensitive jobs and livelihoods for refugees and host communities, focusing on women and youth (including cash for work, small grants, vocational and business skills training and value chain development); protection: legal aid, access to justice and psycho-social support for survivors of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV); and strengthen core government functions: strengthening of relevant national and local level government capacity to cope with and respond to influx of the refugees and to ensure a resilience based development approach is mainstream across the overall response from the start. Component 1 of the project, ‘emergency livelihoods and economic recovery’, provides cash for work, specifically focused on women and youth, targeting 70% refugees and 30% host communities, in line the Government of Uganda’s directive ensuring that 30% of assistance services, where appropriate and feasible, benefit the host community, which in turn sustains and expands the asylum space. In order to implement the above mentioned project intervention in Bidibidi settlement, Yumbe district, UNDP Uganda would like to procure a competent a Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), firms and institutions.
