Component 1 “Climate Resilience and Water Infrastructure for Refugees and Host communities in Northern Uganda” concerns the provision of sufficient, safe and sustainable supply of water and appropriate hygiene and sanitation infrastructure in Small Towns (STs) and Rural Growth Centers (RGCs).

Under this component, also water supply for Yumbe Town Council shall be upgraded.. Requested services for the implementation partner concern detailed design, support to procurement of construction services and construction supervision.
Component 2 “Transformation of small and medium-sized, piped water supply systems to CO2-neutral operation” intends to contribute to an energy-efficient and increasingly CO2-neutral water supply in Northern Uganda. The main focus within this component shall be on selected water supply schemes in small towns and regional growth centres under the Management of the Northern Umbrella of Water and Sanitation (NUWS). Under this component existing water supply systems shall be converted to using solar power. For that purpose, the size of reservoirs, the yield of boreholes and the existing solar panel capacities shall be reviewed and optimised. One new water supply and sanitation system will be constructed.
Requested services concern the support to the implementation partner in further project preparation, detailed design, support to procurement of construction services and construction supervision.

It will include Hygiene Promotion and Sensitization Campaigns, including formation and training of School Health Clubs and Health Management Committees.
