UNDP Uganda: Annual Report 2017

This 2017 UNDP Uganda Annual Report gives an account of some of our most important results and shares our stories of success as we worked with our various partners including Government and local communities in Uganda’s journey towards sustainable and inclusive development.

Climate Change Adaptation in Africa: UNDP Synthesis of Experiences and Recommendations

This report provides an overview of a number of successful initiatives on climate change adaptation that UNDP supported in sub-Saharan Africa from 2000 to 2015. These signposts lay the groundwork needed to tap Africa’s vast resources and human talents to transform the continent and ensure a brighter future for generations to come.

Structural Ricardian Analysis of South-East Asian Agriculture

This paper examines the impact of climate change on the net revenue (NR) of farmers from Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. Two Ricardian models are estimated: (1) a traditional Ricardian model of the impact of climate change on annual farm NR and (2) a structural Ricardian model that first estimates the number of growing seasons and then the net revenue per season. The traditional model reveals annual NR is sensitive to autumn and summer climate variables. The seasonal effects offset each other so that uniform marginal effects are insignificant.

Climate Change Adaptation in the Arab States

The purpose of this publication is to detail lessons learned from UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation work and achievements in the Arab region on achieving sustainable and lasting results. Some lessons include building local capacity at all levels to ensure a project’s long-term viability, decentralizing infrastructure management, implicating community-based organizations, and promoting resilience of vulnerable populations through livelihood diversification.

Gender and disaster risk reduction in Europe and Central Asia

It is meant to assist workshop participants – including practitioners and officials from the United Nations, national governments, civil society organizations, and other institutions – in gaining an understanding of the gendered impact of disasters. 

Advancing on monitoring and evaluation for adaptation in the agriculture sectors

As the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation at the national level is becoming ever more important, a number of countries have built their own M&E frameworks, with others stating their intention do so in the near future. This document provides an overview of the potential steps needed in designing an adaptation M&E framework and plan for the agriculture sectors.

Cost-benefit analysis for climate change adaptation policies and investments in agriculture

This briefing note illustrates the role and logic of Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) in the evaluation of climate change adaptation policies and projects in the agricultural sector and describes the main analytical steps for conducting it, providing practical examples. The note describes the standard CBA methodology but highlights the peculiarities related to its implementation in the context of climate change adaptation in agriculture. It is a knowledge product on CBA within the Integrating agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP–Ag) Programme.

Gender and adaptation planning in the agriculture sectors: The case of Uganda

This case study chronicles Uganda’s experiences developing a gender‑responsive National Adaptation Plan for the Agricultural Sector (NAP-Ag) and related capacity development for gender-responsive planning, budgeting and policy formulation. Lessons learned from these endeavors can provide insights for other countries who are seeking, like Uganda, to align NAP or agricultural sector NAP efforts with national goals as well as the Paris Agreement (Article 7.5), which mandates gender-responsive adaptation actions and capacity-building activities.
