Wednesday, 23rd August, 2017, Kampala, Uganda - The Government of Uganda and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have today signed a financing agreement for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) project to restore degraded wetlands, improve ecosystems, strengthen climate information and early warning systems.
Kampala - A post Uganda Solidarity Summit conversation on Private sector engagement in refugee hosting districts was has called on members of the private sector to take advantage of the opportunities that come with the having refugees in the country.
The meeting organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) was aimed at making a case for private sector investment in refugee hosting districts.
6 August 2017- Uganda and Zambia are carrying out activities to better assess adaptation options through cost-benefit analysis and impact evaluation exercises, as part of the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) Programme, led by FAO and UNDP. Both Uganda and Zambia are also paving the way for gender mainstreaming in national adaptation planning policies.
About the Investment Profiles
In preparation for the Uganda Solidarity Summit 2017, the Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Uganda to prepare investment profiles.
The profiles are intended to mobilise additional investments and commitments to support the country’s efforts towards a more diversified and resilient economy that integrates refugees.
Kampala - Members of the Private Sector have been asked to match up the public sector’s efforts towards supporting refugees.
The call was made by Mr. Patrick Bitature, the Chairperson of Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) during the Uganda Solidarity Summit’s Private Sector Side Event focusing on the theme: “Enabling the Private Sector to support Refugees and Refugee hosting communities.”
UNDP Uganda commissioned a study on ‘Uganda’s Contribution to Refugee Protection and Management’ that for the first-time quantified the country's direct and indirect costs. The Government of Uganda now has a baseline of its expenditure in districts hosting refugees for the first time in history.
This Annual Report highlights the impact of the Joint UNDP-DPA Programme on Building National Capacities for Conflict Prevention. In 2016, the Joint Programme provided support to 45 countries, including through the deployment of Peace and Development Advisors.
“In our culture, there is a saying, ‘Opi pa koka,’ says Drani Stephen Izakare, Paramount Chief of the Madi people of Uganda. “When someone comes to us for refuge, we take them in, we look after each other.”
He is referring to the hospitality that has been extended to over 200,000 South Sudanese refugees currently settled in the Adjumani district of Northern Uganda. Uganda is known for its progressive policy where refugees are provided land, freedom of movement, and access to employment and social services.
Uganda is the largest refugee hosting country in Africa, with more than one million refugees and asylum seekers. Since the outbreak of conflict in South Sudan in 2013, Uganda has been experiencing increasing numbers of refugees, especially in the districts of West Nile, Northern Uganda. In light of the deteriorating security situation in South Sudan, a continued influx of refugees to Uganda is expected.
According to UNHCR, the registered number of new refugees from South Sudan has reached 779,622.
86% of the new refugees are women and children.
KAMPALA - The Government of Japan has contributed a total of US$ 6.3 million to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to support refugees and host communities in Uganda over a period of one year from April 2017 to March 2018.

OCTOBER 10TH, 2016
With the goal of improving the lives and livelihoods of its citizens, the government of Uganda is embarking on an ambitious mission to modernize its weather, water and climate monitoring systems. These updated systems will save lives, build better livelihoods for smallholder farmers, and foster climate-smart decisions which will propel the nation’s economy forward.
The interlinked challenges of climate change and food security are most evident in the agriculture sector, which (combined with land-use change) produces about a quarter of global greenhouse emissions. At the same time, climatic stresses on agriculture and food systems present formidable food security and livelihood challenges to millions.
The 2015-2016 El Niño phenomenon has been one of the strongest on record, affecting deeply the lives and livelihoods of more than 60 million people across 40 countries. It has devastated crops and killed livestock, in some cases dried up water-sources in others caused massive flooding, driven up malnutrition rates, increased disease outbreaks and caused significant migration.

Climate change, including extreme weather events compounded by ineffective risk management systems, threaten to derail efforts to build resilient nations in Africa.

Au nom du Bureau régional pour l’Afrique du PNUD, j’ai le plaisir de présenter le deuxième Rapport sur le développement humain en Afrique, consacré à la concrétisation accélérée de l’égalité des genres sur le continent.
L’égalité des genres n’est pas une priorité de développement nouvelle pour les pays d’Afrique. Son importance est depuis longtemps reconnue à l’échelle du continent.
El presente Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2016, dedicado a la igualdad de género, toma el relevo del Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2012, en el que se analizaba la importancia de garantizar la seguridad alimentaria de todos los africanos. Ambos informes persiguen un mismo objetivo: tratar lo que cabe considerar dos puntos inconclusos de la agenda en el marco de la trayectoria de desarrollo de África. Los dos han sido reconocidos como prioridades importantes para los Gobiernos y los ciudadanos de los países africanos.
The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous. A lot depended on way the MDGs were implemented: if local change agents made them meaningful locally; if local leaders drew on their legitimacy and visibility; if they were employed to solve real-life problems etc.
