Planning for the Future and Adapting to Climate change in Uganda, Lessons from ACCRA

ACCRA uses a set of research and capacity building tools to promote pro-poor and participatory climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in planning processes. Through engaging and supporting local communities, ACCRA seeks to help Local Governments produce better plans in the face of future change and uncertainty. ACCRA also supports the scaling up of its activities across the country and uses its research and evidence to influence national policy formulation, review and change.

ACCRA in Uganda is a consortium made up of Care International, Oxfam, Save the Children, and is led by World Vision Uganda. Key government actors include: the Offi ce of the Prime Minister-OPM (Department of Disaster Preparedness and Management); the Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE) (Department of Meteorology and the Climate Change Unit); the Uganda Local Government Authority (ULGA); the Parliamentary Forum on Climate Change; and the Climate Change Action Network (CAN-U). Internationally, ACCRA works on CCA and DRR across Ethiopia, Mozambique and Uganda.
