|Overview : |
Ugandan cross border communities face a myriad of security, social, environmental and economic vulnerabilities. The porous and uncontrolled borders open a window for sources of insecurity resulting from illicit movement of fire arms and increased transnational cattle theft by organized criminals. Environmental factors, such as the quest for human and animal food and water during the dry seasons remain part and parcel of the cross-border way of life. Trading activities are also affected by poor transport systems, high cost of transport and lack of proper migration systems.
While there are some knowledge of existence and challenges facing Ugandan cross border communities, this information is still scanty. It is important to take stock of the peculiar aspects that render cross-border communities more vulnerable than others.
It’s against this background that UNDP Uganda kindly requests the submission of proposals for "RFP - Consultancy services for a Study on vulnerabilities in cross border communities of Uganda " as per the detailed requirements of this RFP (attached as PDF document). When preparing your proposal, please be guided by the forms attached hereto as Annex of which a Microsoft Word copy is attached for you convenience.
Proposals may be submitted on or before 17th December 2018 (1200 Hours East African Time) by following the submission instructions detailed in the solicitation document (RFP).
