The Ecosystem Based Adaptation (EBA) Programme for Mountain Ecosystems in Uganda, Nepal and Peru aims strengthen the capacities of these three countries, which are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts, to strengthen ecosystem resilience for promoting ecosystem-based adaptation (EBA) options and to reduce the vulnerability of communities, with particular emphasis on mountain ecosystems.
The programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through its International Climate Initiative, and is implemented through a partnership of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).This is a Government of Uganda Programme implemented by the Ministry of Water and Environment.
Specifically the project will support: (i) the development of methodologies and tools for mountain ecosystems; (ii) the application of the above tools and methodologies at the national level; (iii) the implementation of EBA pilots at the ecosystem level; and (iv) the formulation of national policies and building an economic case for EBA at the national level.
The company selected for this assignment will produce supporting and baseline information, analyses and maps to enable the detailed design, monitoring and evaluation of the project’s strategy and implementation plan for promoting ecosystem based adaptation (EBA) to climate change in the Mount Elgon region.
UNDP Uganda therefore requires the services of Ugandan companies with proven expertise in the subject matter.
