Inclusive Green Growth (IGG) for Poverty Reduction Programme
Uganda the “Pearl of Africa” is endowed with abundant natural resources upon which the economy and livelihood of over 80% of the population largely depends. However, this natural resource base is declining at an alarming rate. Four outstanding bottlenecks are hindering the national efforts in addressing the increasing degradation of natural resources, namely:
(i) gaps in policies and legal framework for integrated/coordinated efforts in Natural Resource Management (NRM), livelihood and job creation
(ii) inadequate capacities for coherent and efficient implementation of policies on natural resources management, livelihoods and job creation, including capacities for innovation, adaptation and development of home-grown solutions
(iii) inadequate capacities for engaging communities in natural resources management and climate change response efforts, and
(iv) Over-dependence on biomass energy sources using inefficient technologies.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Gender. Labour and Social Development (Responsible Party). Ministry of Water and Environment (Lead Implementing Partner) and other Stakeholders are implementing Inclusive Green Growth for Poverty Reduction Programme. The Programme will aim at providing technical, technological, operational and financial support to the relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and non-state institutions so that:
(a) at the upstream level, by 2017 policies and legal/regulatory frameworks are strengthened and linked for Natural Resource Management, livelihood and job creation,
(b) at mid-stream level, by 2018 Natural Resource Management policies and legal frameworks are operationalized in inclusive and adequately coordinated manner,
(c) at downstream level, by 2019 the public is empowered to engage in sustainable Natural Resource Management and.
(d) by 2020 cost-effective alternative energy solutions for domestic needs are scaled-up.
The primary beneficiaries of the project are the women (adult), youth (young females and males) and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) especially the poor so that their productive and income generation capacities and livelihood opportunities are improved in an environmentally sustainable manner.
