Overview :

Request for Proposals Provision of Consultancy Services to Undertake Mapping of 4 Catchment Areas to be rehabilitated In the Surroundings of the restored Wetlands

Background :

In Uganda, wetlands provide many important functions including supporting the agriculture sector particularly in the context of food security. Over 80% of the people living adjacent to wetland areas in Uganda directly depend on wetland resources for their household food security needs especially during the dry period of the year. However, wetland health and resilience can be compromised by poor agricultural practices in the adjacent catchments. For example, in Kabale, district, within the southwestern wetland basin, 58% of the wetlands have been drained for farming and other activities. Communities are searching for land in the wetlands because soils in the catchments are becoming increasingly infertile due to temperature increase and other climatic changes. As a result, the wetland ecosystems have lost their capacity to retain nutrients, store and filter water.

Considering the rate at which wetlands are disappearing, the government of Uganda initiated a process of restoring wetlands and their associated catchments with a major focus on promoting climate resilient agriculture interventions in areas surrounding wetlands starting with selected districts in Eastern and South-Western Uganda. Districts in the East include; Kaliro, Namutumba, Pallisa, Budaka, Kibuku, Butaleja, Tororo, Mbale, Bukea and Ngora while those in the South Western include; Kabale, Kisoro, Rukungiri, Kanungu, Ntungamo, Bushenyi, Buhweju, Rubirizi, Sheema and Mitooma. Among the key activities to be implemented in these districts under the GCF project, is to undertake a detailed assessment of gaps and needs for the rehabilitation of catchments that are adjacent to wetlands targeted for restoration. The assessment is expected to focus on the status of the key resources within the catchment including soil resources, forests and water. Capacity of the different stakeholders to undertake restoration activities will also be assessed in addition to mapping the degraded sites.

 Specific objectives :

  1. Determine the levels of degradation to inform rehabilitation activities in the four catchments ;
  2. Evaluate the lost economic opportunities within the mapped landscapes as a result of degradation ;
  3. Propose rehabilitation measures, tools and technologies that can be used to regain the lost benefits ;
  4. UNDP now invites qualified proposals to undertake this assignment.

Application Deadline: 9th May 2019
