Office of the Prime Minister with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing a Project on strengthening Community Resilience to Climate Change and Disaster Risks in Uganda, in cooperation with key government ministries and departments. Given Uganda’s high vulnerability to natural and human-induced disasters, the project will contribute to adaptation, transformation and resilience building by reducing vulnerability to climate and disaster risk, through provision of integrated and mutually reinforcing upstream and downstream support to address four bottlenecks, namely; a) gaps in policies and legal frameworks required to integrate and provide funding for climate change response and disaster risk reduction; b) gaps in capacities to implement climate change resilience and disaster risk reduction in an inclusive and coordinated manner, with guaranteed effectiveness and efficiency; c) weak capacities for adoption and adaptation of emerging technologies and methods for low carbon emission and climate change resilience; and d) weak public response to climate and disaster risk.
