Overview of Southern partner organisations
The table below provides an overview of Southern partner organisations of Dutch CFAs in
Uganda. Eight partners have been pre-selected for the assessment of capacity development of
Southern partner organisations. These partners have been marked in the table under the column
„5C study‟. The assessment of efforts to strengthen civil society must include a representative
sample of Southern partner organisations of the Dutch CFAs in Uganda. This sample should be
drawn by the research team.

                                       example is the participation in the coalition against
                                       the use of corporal and humiliating punishment
                                       through which we endeavour to influence the
                                       clauses in the children‟s act and to push for a law
                                       against corporal punishment.

Short description of project          In this project ICTs are utilized in a number of
                                      ways to improve health service delivery and
                                      ultimately improve the health of communities. The
                                      project has a resource centre for use by the
                                      community to access health information and for
                                      training of community health workers and
                                      community members. Information is accessed
                                      through computers, television, DVDs and digital
                                      stories. Health Child also has a website to act as a
                                      portal for sharing information, and a database to
                                      capture data gathered by the health workers on the
                                      households they visit. Furthermore, text messages
                                      are used for health sensitisation and monitoring of
                                      pregnant mothers.

Selected project

Short description of project            The two main natural hazards that communities are
                                        exposed to in Uganda are drought as well as floods.
                                        Drought mainly features in the North-east of the
                                        country, i.e. Karamoja Region and Acholi Region,
                                        while floods occur mainly in Teso Region as well as
                                        the neighbouring areas, i.e. Acholi and Karamoja
                                        Regions. Adverse effects of climate change are
                                        already visible in the regions. In the 1980‟s and
                                        1990‟s Karamoja for example used to experience
                                        severe drought cycles every 10 years. During the
                                        last decade, severe drought conditions have
                                        become more frequent, coming every two to three
                                        years. From 2006 to date Karamoja has
                                        experienced severe drought. When rains began in
                                        the second half of 2007, they were short and
                                        torrential, leading to widespread flooding and
                                        destruction of property and infrastructures and loss
                                        of lives in many parts of Teso Region but also in
                                        Karamoja Region.




                                                                                               24
These climate changes affect both crops and
livestock leading to depletion of food stocks, low
incomes, high prices and livestock disease.
Development interventions have concentrated on
immediate crisis, especially providing emergency
relief for famine stricken populations especially the
distribution of food aid (including food for work;
supporting therapeutic and supplementary feeding
centres). While emergency humanitarian assistance
is extremely important, resources need to be
invested also in strengthening the capacity of the
community to build internal sustainable
mechanisms to cope with long term adversity.
Governmental and non-governmental interventions
should be geared at enhancing long term
sustainable development, implying that
humanitarian assistance needs to be integrated
with long-term development strategies, if they are
to promote sustainable livelihoods.
Households are extremely vulnerable to natural
hazards such as flood and drought. When these
occur they often result in food insecurity and a
weakening of the social service delivery system.
Many of the natural hazards faced are made worse
by environmental degradation and the effects of
climate change.
Households possess an inadequate understanding
of the links between climate change, environmental
degradation and increased risks of disasters.
Subsequently they also lack adequate capacity to
reduce the risks associated with disasters. When
disasters do occur there is also a lack of economic
capacity to recover without significant external
interventions. With few other options for economic
empowerment communities are often forced to turn
to tree cutting and other forms of environmental
degradation, such as wetland encroachment, to
sustain their livelihoods, especially during the dry
seasons.
Level staff still lack significant practical experience
in disaster risk management, climate change and
climate change adaptation and there is a need for
institutional and capacity building.
The interest in climate change adaptation is only
beginning; therefore the capacity of local
governments is also quite low in terms of the ability
to analyse the context of climate change and
climate adaptation. There is also a resource gap
between what is available for adaptation measures
and what is needed. In terms of environmental
degradation, current enforcement of natural
resource policies is generally inadequate. This has a
number of causes including inadequate facilitation


                                                          25
                            from the macro level and a need for increased
                            understanding regarding the trade-offs between
                            short-term economic benefits of ecosystems and
                            the long term socio-economic benefits of
                            ecosystems.
                            Under the UN Framework Convention on Climate
                            Change, Uganda Minister of State for Environment
                            has prepared its National Adaptation Plan of Action
                            (NAPA) in 2007. However, while the interest exists,
                            decision makers still lack the experience and
                            resources necessary to implement meaningful
                            policies.
                            The national platform for DRR is just beginning to
                            be developed, while the Ministry of Water and
                            Environment has formed a Climate Change Unit.
                            However this unit lacks adequate funding to be able
                            to implement activities at the community level.
                            There is a national level policy for wetlands
                            management but enforcement at the local level
                            remains a challenge. At the macro level there is a
                            need to develop and operationalize systems for
                            early warning, early action which will be linked to
                            the meso and micro level.
                            Overall, it is necessary to have knowledge transfer
                            from the micro to the macro level and financial and
                            technical support from the macro to the micro
                            level.

Where are beneficiaries located?      The Ugandan Partners for Resilience will focus on
                                      communities that are directly dependent on natural
                                      resources to sustain their livelihoods. All of the
                                      target groups have few other options for economic
                                      empowerment which, coupled with other social and
                                      political factors such as conflict and poor
                                      enforcement of environmental regulations, has led
                                      to significant encroachment on fragile ecosystems,
                                      resulting in massive environmental degradation. As
                                      a result of this degradation, communities are
                                      leaving themselves increasingly vulnerable to
                                      recurring disasters such as floods and droughts.
                                      When these disasters occur, they weaken the
                                      socio-economic institutions within the community,
                                      by increasing poverty, decreasing school
                                      attendance and increasing the existing challenges
                                      to social service delivery. Without taking action, the
                                      linkages between all of these factors will continue
                                      in a negative feedback cycle that will be further
                                      exacerbated and catalysed by the predicted effects
                                      of climate change. While the linkages presented
                                      here are often viewed as quite complex, it remains
                                      clear that deliberate and effective community
                                      managed interventions, with a focus on disaster
                                      risk reduction and ecosystem management, are
                                      necessary to reduce the challenges posed to
                                      sustainable and effective livelihoods development.
                                      In the Lango sub-region, particular focus will be
                                      placed on Lira and Apac districts. These districts,
                                      located in the north, are prone to flooding and
                                      drought. This area has a high concentration of
                                      wetlands in varying states of environmental
                                      degradation and is also an area of depleted forest
                                      cover.


                                      The Karamojong are agro-pastoralists, in the semi-
                                      arid Karamoja region of northeast Uganda. Rainfall
                                      in this area is very sparse, more frequently leading
                                      to drought, however when it does come it often
                                      causes flash flooding locally as well as in
                                      neighbouring Teso. This area is also characterized
                                      by high rates of soil erosion and deforestation. Due
                                      to the harsh environment in this region, the
                                      Karamojong have a history of roaming across the


                                                                                               27
Karamoja border into the Acholi and Teso regions.
This, in conjunction with traditional practices and
modern weaponry, has lead to a long history of
conflict in these communities which is likely to be
stressed by the effects of climate change. As
almost the whole population of Karamoja region is
vulnerable to the effects of climate change, the
Resilience Alliance will work in all districts of
Karamoja, Kotido, Kabong and Abim in the north
and Moroto, Nakapiripirit and Amudat in the south.


The Acholi/Iteso are subsistence farmers located in
a low-lying, mostly flat region, prone to flooding
and drought. These regions also have significant
environmental degradation specifically in the form
of deforestation. The Teso region also has a high
concentration of seasonal wetlands and, sharing a
watershed with parts of Karamoja, is also at a high
risk of flash flooding. This watershed connection
poses interesting challenges and opportunities for
upstream-downstream management between two
communities, which have historically been in
conflict with each other, however are becoming
increasingly peaceful. As mainly the population in
areas bordering Karamoja region and Lango sub-
region is vulnerable to the effects of drought and
flood, the Resilience Alliance will work in selected
districts of Acholi sub-region, i.e. Kitgum, Pader,
Amuru and of Teso sub-region, i.e. Katakwi and
Amuria districts.


The Partners for Resilience have selected these
communities because of their high vulnerability and
overlapping environmental hazards. These hazards
will increase as a result of climate change and
further environmental degradation. The common
hazards in the target areas also provide a unique
opportunity for direct knowledge sharing between
the target communities. These target communities
are also critically dependent on natural resources to
sustain their livelihoods with few other options for
economic empowerment. The locally based
Partners for Resilience also have a strong presence
in the target communities with extensive
experience working with these communities in
other sectors. This combined with a high level of
mutual respect and support between the
communities and the Partners for Resilience will
provide a solid foundation for the implementation
of the desired activities. It is also a strategic
decision to focus on natural resource related risks.
Since the communities are highly vulnerable to the
health of their local environments, the Climate

Selected project

Short description of project            The “reducing delays to maternal and neonatal
                                        healthcare services in Bushenyi district” is a three-
                                        year pilot project funded by Cordaid and
                                        implemented by Save for health Uganda. It is to
                                        test the possibility of improving utilization of
                                        maternal and neonatal healthcare (MNH) services
                                        by rural families using the health micro insurance
                                        approach. Having piloted the original approach
                                        where financial pooling is by all parish families but
                                        benefits limited to pregnant women and the new-
                                        borns (within their first 28 days) for one year, SHU
                                        in consultation with Cordaid added two approaches
                                        to realizing the project objectives after several

                                                                                                35
                                      complaints of exclusion raised by the other
                                      community residents who were not direct
                                      beneficiaries. The two additional approaches are: 1)
                                      two products in one scheme: The first product for
                                      obstetrics services with automatic membership
                                      after a fixed parish premium is paid, and the
                                      second being a voluntary membership arrangement
                                      covering general medical services excluding
                                      obstetrics care; 2) Universal coverage – This
                                      approach will automatically cover all village
                                      residents after the village pays a fixed premium.

Selected project

Short description of project            The overall objective of the programme is to
                                        improve the health status of the population in the
                                        Diocese of Jinja. The programme focuses on the
                                        one hand on how the DHO is functioning and on the
                                        other hand on how 6 health centres are functioning
                                        which will take place in a Performance Based
                                        Financing approach. The health centres elaborated
                                        business plans how they want to improve their
                                        functioning. As basis the Standard Unit of Output
                                        (SUO) is used, which is a (weighed) measure of the
                                        Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau (under which all
                                        catholic facilities fall) to monitor performance of the
                                        health facilities over time and between them. In the
                                        SUO calculation 1 SUO = 5*In Patients + 1* Out
                                        Patient + 2* delivery + 0,3* AnteNatalCare + 0,2*
                                        immunization doses. With SUO, the accessibility is
                                        measured (total SUO), the equity (user fee per
                                        SUO), the efficiency (costs per SUO) and the
                                        productivity (SUO per staff). Also quality (%
                                        qualified staff, patient satisfaction score, drug
                                        prescription) is measured and used in bonus
                                        calculations.
