The four-year Sida-UNDP Programme on Environment and Climate Change (Sida Programme) (2020- 2023) is designed to help UNDP deliver better external country results in line with its Signature Solutions. It supports the need for strengthened internal capacities to achieve UNDP’s overall sustainable development (SD) vision for poverty eradication through a more integrated, coherent approach to the environmental and climate dimensions of its Strategic Plan.
The Programme is grounded in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the emerging post-2020 global Biodiversity Framework and linked multilateral environmental conventions and agreements, as well as the challenges and opportunities around COVID-19. The programme includes an overarching priority on poverty eradication and an understanding of the many direct links between multidimensional poverty and natural resource management.
To address development challenges in an integrated manner, the Sida Programme builds stronger coordination and synergies at the global, regional, and country levels across four complementary thematic areas:
The Programme also builds stronger coordination and synergies across a closely linked set of cross-cutting themes on gender equality and women’s empowerment, conflict sensitivity, and finance.
The Sida Programme supports UNDP Uganda’s internal capacities to enhance the Country Office (CO)’s quality and delivery of its projects and overall programme. To this end, the Sida Programme aims to better connect the dots across Uganda’s Nature, Climate and Energy (NCE) portfolio and strengthen the internal capacities of the CO for integrated programming in ways that contribute to accelerated structural transformations for SD.
