Environment & Social Management Framework (ESMF) for Strengthening Climate Resilience in Awoja Catchment

The GoU has received financing from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) for the development of the “Strengthening the Adaptive Capacity and Resilience of Communities in Uganda's watersheds” project. The project will be financed by the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) managed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). It will be a complementary and catalytic source of support in enhancing the effectiveness of the AVCP 1 and utilize its scale to make the agriculture value chain and watersheds resilient to climate change. The Project will be implemented in the districts of Bukedea, Sironko, Bulambuli, and Kapchorwa, targeting the sub catchments of Lake Okoliritorom, Sironko, Simu-sisi, Muyembe and Sipi within the Awoja catchment. This project has four (4) components, namely: 1) Climate resilient infrastructure implemented for enhanced livelihoods, 2) Strengthened capacity of communities and institutions for climate resilient planning in four watersheds, 3) Climate information integrated into development plans & early warning systems, and 4) M&E and Adaptation Learning.
