Overview :

The Project “Supporting Developing Countries to Integrate Agriculture Sectors into National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag)” is Directly implemented by UNDP and FAO in Uganda and 7 other countries. The project has goal of integrating climate change concerns related to agriculture-based livelihoods within existing national planning and budgeting processes of the selected countries. The integration of adaptation options in planning frameworks and budgets is expected to contribute to the enhancement of:

  • Institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the agricultural sector;
  • Access to international financing opportunities, such as the climate finance sources from GEF and Green Climate Fund; and
  • More strategic allocations of national budgets earmarked for adaptation investments;
  • The results and processes used will be highly relevant to inform other sectors of good practices in integrating adaptation needs into national planning and budgeting;
  • Lessons and experiences from the other 7 countries where similar interventions are being implemented.

The Uganda component of the three-year program in is supported by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment’s (BMUB) and International Climate Initiative (IKI); with USD$700,000 earmarked to support interventions. This project responds to UNFCCC conclusions that invited UN organizations, specialized agencies, and bilateral organizations to enhance financial and technical support to the NAP process for developing countries. Through the NAP-Ag project, FAO and UNDP will extend technical assistance to the Government of Uganda and other partners in developing and implementing a National Adaptation Plan (NAP) for the Agriculture Sector.

The NAP process in Uganda will build on previous government responses to climate challenges, such as developing the National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) in 2007. The NAPAs were considered as immediate interventions that have to be implemented in response to climate change challenges. Priority interventions were identified by agricultural stakeholders in the country, to cushion the country from climate change impacts and effects. The NAPA projects were implemented and have provided lessons that can be used for development and implementation of NAPs process.

Results of this consultancy shall contribute to Outcome 4 - Advocacy and knowledge-sharing on NAPs promoted and to Output 4.1 Convened exchanges on science and technology and economics of adaptation to support the integration of adaptation options into national investment plans managed. The target will be use the information to Sensitize technical staff and public service providers on the work that government is already doing, review existing materials and develop awareness and training materials to address the knowledge gaps on NAPs, NAPAs and the NAP process, Conduct cost benefit analyses for the different interventions in NAPA projects.

Objectives:
