National Consultant to Review of policies and strategies for Environment, Natural Resources, livelihoods and job creation

UNDP Country Office - UGANDA | Published October 4, 2016  -  Deadline October 7, 2016
cpvs

Uganda is endowed with abundant natural resources, including land, water, soil, climate and diverse range of magnificent scenery, flora and fauna; rich mineral deposits and friendly people. The country’s economy remains largely dependent on these natural resources upon which over 80% of the population derives its livelihood. Unfortunately, the natural resource base is declining at an alarming rate.Uganda has largely put in place many policies, legal and institutional frameworks and implemented various initiatives towards sustainable natural and environmental resource management, and economic growth. However, there are four outstanding bottlenecks that are affecting efforts in addressing the increasing degradation of natural resources in effective, efficient and sustainable ways. These are; (i) gaps in policies and legal framework for integrated and coordinated efforts in natural resource management, livelihood and job creation, (ii) inadequate capacities for coherent and efficient implementation of policies that integrate natural resource management, livelihoods and job creation, including capacities for innovation and adaptation, (iii) inadequate capacities for engaging communities in natural resources management and climate change response efforts and, (iv) overdependence on biomass energy sources.The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Environment (Lead Implementing Partner) and other Stakeholders is implementing the Inclusive Green Growth for Poverty Reduction Programme. The Programme will aim at providing technical, technological, operational and financial support to the relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and non-state institutions so thatThis will result into improved quality of natural resources as a result of reduced degradation and improved livelihoods and greener jobs through applying more sustainable practices due to policy recommendations.Justification:There are gaps and incoherencies in the policy and legal framework due to inadequate capacity of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to undertake cross sectoral diagnostic and analytical studies, develop and implement integrated plans, policies and legal frameworks pertaining to natural resource management, livelihoods and job creation; lack of incentive frameworks for the private sector to invest in sustainable production and consumption activities; lack of comprehensive communication strategies on natural resource management, livelihoods and job creation.These gaps have continued to affect sustainable use of natural resources that create jobs and improve people’s livelihoods.Objective:The overall objective of this assignment is to undertake a thorough review of the existing policies and strategies taking into account identification of gaps in environment, natural resources, livelihoods and job creation.

Request for Applications: Uganda Country Training Workshops on Environment, Community, Health & Safety in the Development Minerals Sector

REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONSUganda Country Training Workshops on Environment, Community, Health & Safety in the Development Minerals Sector ACP-EU Development Minerals ProgrammeBackground: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. 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 programme is making contribution to addressing these challenges through targeted capacity support to mining sector stakeholders towards robust environmental, health & safety practices; improved mining and quarry management and effective conflict resolution and community relations.The Programme, in partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals Development, is conducting 5-day country-level training workshops in the various regions of Uganda in the thematic areas of Environment, Community and Health and Safety. The workshops will be hosted in Mbale, Entebbe, Gulu and Mbarara districts and will be attended by approximately forty participants in each the four districts. The training workshops have the following objectives:Increase the awareness of environment, community, and health and safety issues and challengesFacilitate south-south knowledge exchange on the practices and governance arrangements necessary for the sector to contribute to inclusive and sustainable developmentBuild the capacity of individual stakeholders through participation in the training workshop and the preparation of return-to-work plansUNDP is now accepting expressions of interest to participate in the training programmes that cover these thematic areas. The training participants will include public stakeholders such as regulatory agencies and local governments, private sector stakeholders such as small-scale mining enterprises, associations, business development stakeholders including universities and civil society stakeholders and community groups from Uganda. Applicants must demonstrate an interest and experience in working in Uganda’s Mining sector, be based in the four regions covered in the aforementioned districts and be willing to prepare and implement Return to Work Plans. Each applicant is requested to write a cover letter justifying their eligibility for selection for training and fill in the Request for Applications form appended on this document.Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted.

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.

Government of Uganda, through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is implementing the project on “Strengthening climate information and early warning systems in Africa for climate resilient development and adaptation to climate change (SCIEWS) Uganda”. This is part of a wider Programme on Climate Information for Resilient Development for 11 Least Developed Countries in Africa (CIRDA). The project is being implemented by the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE), in collaboration with other responsible partners including: the Department of Relief, Disaster Preparedness and Management (DRDPM)/Office of the Prime Minister (OPM); the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industries and Fisheries Resources (MAAIF); The Ministry of Local Government (MoLG); The Uganda Communications Commission; The Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED). The Uganda National Meteorological Authority (UNMA) and the Department of Water Resource Management (DWRM) under the MWE are the immediate beneficiaries of the project. Due to climate change, there has been an increase in weather extremes globally which has resulted into several weather related calamities (Floods, Droughts, Landslides, Heat waves, Extreme temperatures, and Lightning strikes). Uganda has in the past witnessed an increase of weather related hazards. In addition, Uganda currently has no operational lightning detection network or weather Radar, which are essential means of identifying and predicting thunderstorm activity.Government of Uganda, through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is implementing the project on “Strengthening climate information and early warning systems in Africa for climate resilient development and adaptation to climate change (SCIEWS) Uganda”.

National Consultant to undertake Rapid Assessment of Uganda’s Protected Areas (PAs)

Uganda Country Office - UGANDA | Published May 8, 2017  -  Deadline May 19, 2017

Uganda’s Protected areas (PA) cover approximately 16.3% of the country’s total land area[1] (NEMA, 2009). They are largely divided into three major categories that include: i) National Parks, Wildlife Reserves and Community Wildlife Sanctuaries; ii) Permanent Forest Estate (Forest Reserves); and iii) Ramsar sites[2]. Wildlife Protected Areas cover 11% of Uganda’s total area and hold about 50% of the country’s wildlife. They include: 10 National Parks and 12 Wildlife Reserves, 4 Ramsar sites, 7 Wildlife Sanctuaries, 13 Community Wildlife Areas, 3 Man and Biosphere (MAB) reserves and one site on the provisional world heritage list.The Republic of Uganda has, over the years, taken concrete steps to ensure that the conservation and sustainable management of her Protected Areas. Steps taken by the Government include the adoption of the National Environment Management Policy (1994); enactment of the i) Wildlife Act (2000), ii) National Forestry and Tree Planting Act (2003) and iii) National Environment Act (2005); development of several sectoral policies such as Community Conservation Policy 2004, Wildlife Policy 2014 and the Tourism Policy 2015.Despite the existence of these laws and policies as well as supportive international agreements, unsustainable human activities still pose a big challenge to the continued survival of Uganda’s rich biodiversity. Uganda’s natural resources are declining at an alarming rate. From 1994 to 2008, forest areas declined from 25 per cent to 15 per cent and wetland cover from 15.6 to 10.9 per cent[3] largely due to unsustainable production and consumption systems, limited alternative livelihoods opportunities and human wildlife conflict. There is also a significant unmet demand for funding of conservation which underscores the need for market solutions and private sector investment in achieving resource allocation and conservation goals.To preserve the health of natural ecosystems, significantly higher volumes of capital investment are required than the amounts currently allocated for conservation. Private sector investment therefore is needed, not to replace but to complement traditional sources of conservation capital such as public funding and philanthropy, which have been negatively impacted by the global economic downturn. Conservation finance provides an opportunity to addressing the problem of gross underinvestment in this area.Following a meeting between the President of Uganda H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and Ms. Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator, at the ‘Giants Summit’ (hosted by the Republic of Kenya and the NGO Space for Giants in April 2016), where UNDP reiterated its will to support the Government of Uganda on environmental matters, it was thereafter agreed that in subsequent meetings between Government, Space for Giants and UNDP there was need for Uganda to develop an investment framework to harness emerging finance for conservation, especially into protected areas management. Further, that Uganda would thereafter host the Giants Club Conservation and Tourism Investment Forum to showcase the highlighted investment opportunities in Uganda’s Conservation sector.The Government of Uganda has requested UNDP to provide technical assistance to undertake an assessment of Uganda’s Protected Areas and their conservation potential. The purpose of this assessment is to establish and report on the conservation status of protected areas as part of a wider piece of work to determine suitability for investment. This builds on a parallel request by Government to the NGO Space for Giants to assess the investment platform and opportunity. In this regard, UNDP is seeking the services of a competent consultant to undertake a rapid assessment of the conservation status of Uganda’s ‘tier 2’ Protected Areas, namely its Wildlife Reserves, Sanctuaries and Community Wildlife Areas.[1] National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), 2009[2] Protected areas designated and managed under international law of Conventions[3] National State of the Environment Report, 2012

Today, 54 per cent of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. Projections show that urbanization combined with the overall growth of the world’s population could add another 2.5 billion people to urban populations by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa, (World Urbanization prospects- United Nations report).Although Uganda today is predominantly a rural nation, with approximately 18% of the population living in urban areas, the annual rate of urbanization of 5.2% is among the world’s highest and therefore a cause for concern. The World Bank estimates that Uganda's urban population will increase from six million in 2013 to over 20 million in 2040. \"The typical Ugandan city has grown rapidly, but without sufficient policy coordination and capacity to handle the challenges of this phenomenon resulting from the inadequate resource allocation to the sector. The living environment does not provide decent housing or adequate public goods and services for a large proportion of city residents,\" the report said.Uganda today has 41 Municipalities, 239 Town councils and over 200 Town Boards. It is estimated that Uganda will have more than 50% of its population living in urban centers by 2050, this urban growth is highly associated with negative effects on the environment and thus putting the urban areas at a risk of effects of climate change such as flooding, outbreak of diseases among others.However, no proper guidelines have been put in place to guide the development process of the urban centers in Uganda for sustainable development.Through funding from UNDP, the Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development intends to address the above problem by developing Guidelines to Mainstream Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in urban development activities in the country through hiring an individual consultant.Objectives:The objective of the assignment is to develop Guidelines to Mainstream Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in urban planning and development activities in the country.
