Overview :

Uganda’s vision is to attain upper middle economy status by 2040. Uganda’s economic and human development is closely tied to a number of climate-sensitive resources and sectors, such as agriculture, water, environment, natural resources, health, transport and housing.  The second National Development Plan (NDP II) to operationalize realization of the vision recognizes that if climate and disaster risks are not prevented and mitigated, they could slow down Uganda’s transformation. This is because Uganda is susceptible to natural hazards, of which 70 per cent are of hydro-meteorological origin.

Uganda Nationally Determined Contributions commitment to the Climate Change Paris Agreement prioritises climate information and early warning under the adaptation section for agriculture while the Uganda GCF country programme identifies development of climate information as an important prerequisite for effective long-term climate strategies under agriculture and livestock.  Uganda has selected UNDP as the GCF Accredited Entity to support design of a project on broadening the effective use of climate information for early warning and resilient development to access financing from the Green Climate Fund. The project is being designed to scale up results of the ongoing GEF financed Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems (SCIEWS) project. %)[1]. Given that climate effects and resilience building  have differential requirements for men, women, youth and other sub-segments of the population, enhancing national capacities to produce and deliver end-to-end climate information products and services and to broaden their effective use for disaster preparedness, mitigation and response must also address the different gender needs.

Lessons from the African region and elsewhere have led to a revaluation of the role of private sector in all aspects of generation dissemination of climate information products and services. Stated shifts in policy in favour of public-private partnerships by national government and multilateral agencies present  new opportunities which need to be fully explored in Uganda. The state of knowledge on this topic is both flimsy and fragmented. Detailed and in-depth engagements are needed with key sectors to outline a framework for the NMHS in Uganda to leverage PPP to ensure inclusiveness and gender equity in the process of commercialization of climate services in niche sectors.

Ministries with mandates such as agriculture, water resources management, health and infrastructure lack a framework for developing end-user products and services which actively involve end-users in data gathering and analysis. Most assessments of the NMHS in Uganda have been limited to technical aspects of the hydro-meteorological networks and communication and dissemination of climate information. While there are isolated studies and pilot projects to identify and address specific challenges, there is no comprehensive framework for gender disaggregation and end-to-end communication of climate information products and services with marginalised and indigenous groups and vulnerable populations in Uganda.

In this regard, UNDP Uganda Country Office requires services of a Gender and Engagement Specialist who will work closely with the International and National counterparts to  develop  a strategy to address these challenges through targeted activities and engagement of these end-users and formulate a succinct project proposal on enhancing Uganda’s climate resilient development. The Gender Specialist will support UNDP country offices; the Regional Technical Advisors (RTAs) as well as the Government to ensure integration of the local gender content that will contribute towards the final deliverables for this assignment.

 

Objective of the assignment :

The main objective of the consultancy is to support the proposal development process in Uganda, under the supervision of the International counterpart. Working closely with the International Consultant, the Gender and engagement Specialist is required to conduct a gender analysis and develop an action plan to inform the proposed climate information and early warning system for all relevant sectors and segments of the population. The specialist will be provided with detailed guidelines to ensuring that the work complements that produced by the other specialists engaged in the assignment.
