CALL FOR PROPOSALS
F-SURE KARAMOJA PROJECT MICROGRANTS
The UNDP GEF Small Grants Programme invites applications/proposals from registered indigenous non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community based organizations (CBOs) for grants to implement community level projects that enhance ecosystem services, adopt sustainable land management practices, and innovate alternative livelihood options in six districts of Karamoja Region comprising: Moroto, Kotido, Kaabong, Karenga, Nakapiripirit and Nabilatuk. Maximum grant shall not exceed US$ 20,000 per project and the project lifetime shall not exceed 1 year (12 months).
Proposed interventions should target local communities including subsistence farmers, pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and other resource users and ensure that vulnerable segments of the population in the project area have sustainable livelihoods and employment including improved agricultural systems, to manage the population dynamics, economic disparities, environment shocks and recovery.
Priority will be given to proposals that respond to one or both of the following objectives:
- Contribute to reversal of land degradation and deforestation, biodiversity loss, and a reduction of climate change emissions
- Promote diversification and improvement of livelihoods and livelihood options through techniques like water harvesting, post-harvest management, business skills development, etc
In addition, proposals that demonstrate innovative approaches through which local enterprises and communities, particularly women, are able to access alternative energy; adapt to climate change; and sustainably use natural resources for productive purposes are preferred.
