The purpose of the Call for Expression of Interest is to solicit interest from national not for profit rural civil society organisations or University as Implementing Partners that wish to participate in UN-Habitat operation and contribute complementary resources to achieving common objectives as outlined below and subsequently agreed in an Agreement of Cooperation.

The aim is to implement a project in Uganda to improve land and natural resources tenure security for rural poor smallholder farmers including women, youth and vulnerable groups in select areas in West Nile and South Western Uganda.

The submission deadline is 6 March 2019.

The scope of work aims to implement a project in Uganda to improve land and natural resources tenure security for about 5,000 rural poor smallholder farmers, including women, youth and vulnerable groups.

The interventions are focused on strengthening customary land administration in line with the Land Act and the National Land Policy. A combination of situations or project areas is preferred. This specific project aims to customise and implement GLTN’s pro-poor and gender-sensitive land tools to improve tenure security of the smallholder farmers. As per above, the Project also aims to strengthen the capacity of change agents and influence policy changes as appropriate towards achieving the objective.
