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:
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.
In order to monitor impacts of the Uganda climate change policy, a Performance Monitoring Framework (PMF) was designed with a broad coverage for monitoring impacts for different sectors, and its implementation is coordinated by the Climate Change Department (CCD). Similarly, key sectors ought to develop sector specific PMFs to monitor details of climate change actions proposed in the policy. Through this consultancy, this project will facilitate a process of developing a PMF for the agricultural sector in Uganda. Effectiveness of the framework will be determined through an impact assessment framework that is based on quasi-experimental design principles, strong economic foundations, and identification of gender-differentiated needs and adaptation options.
The agricultural sector PMF will be used to generate evidence based results of adaptation options based on quasi-experimental design principles used in impact evaluation frameworks, will be used inform other sectors that have not yet had opportunities to develop their sector specific PMFs and results from the application of the framework will serve as an input into the policy dialogue on national adaptation planning.
Results of this consultancy shall contribute to Outcome 3 – Improved Evidence-based results for NAPs and to Output 3.1 An impact assessment framework for a portfolio of BMUB/ LDCF/SCCF projects on agriculture based livelihoods projects ongoing in targeted countries designed and applied. The target will be to have at least 2 sub-sectors of MAAIF adopt impact assessment frameworks based on quasi experimental design frameworks.
The objective of the assignment is to develop a Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for Climate Change Adaptation in Agriculture Sector.
