Overview :

Uganda has witnessed several natural and human-induced disasters that have culminated into loss of life, property and displacements. The following have been prevalent: displacement, because of civil strife and natural disasters; famine as result of drought; transport accidents, earthquakes, epidemics, flooding, landslides, and environmental degradation resulting in increasing levels over risk.

To reduce disaster losses and better manage disaster and climatic risks, Uganda’s Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) is increasing its efforts towards disaster risk management, with a focus on hazard assessment, exposure assessment, vulnerability assessment and risk assessment. With the support of UNDP, OPM has developed district-level hazard, vulnerability and risk profiles and maps for all 112 districts.

Building on this evidence base at the district level, OPM has commissioned the development of a national methodology to support risk-informed development at the sub-national level. At the national level, OPM seeks to consolidate the work completed to date and develop a national risk atlas.

The purpose of the national risk atlas is to guide and support decision-makers, both in the public and private sectors, make evidence-based, risk-informed investment and planning decisions. It is envisaged that the atlas will be housed at the National Emergency Coordination and Operations Centre, as a dynamic tool, supported by real-time information and draw from an array of existing systems and platforms.

Objectives of the Consultancy:

UNDP seeks to engaging a Risk Assessment Expert to provide technical inputs to hazard, exposure, vulnerability, and risk profiling in support of the development of the national risk atlas.
