Building Drought Resilience Programme (BDRP) – Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) for Uganda

The BDRP projects aims at strengthening the resilience of communities, to the impacts of increasingly severe and frequent climate disasters within well-managed river catchment ecosystems in Kenya, Uganda and the Eastern and Southern Africa Region. The purpose of the project is to improve the integrity and health of catchment ecosystems in priority catchments and landscapes and the adaptive capacities of communities living in them over a 7-year period (2018-2025). In Uganda, the project will be implemented in the Aswa catchment in northern part of the country, influencing the lives of 3.6 million people living within the catchment, while directly benefitting 131,000 people.
