Job Title

Consultant job at World-Wide Fund for Nature

Job Description

1. Background
The promotion of tree planting culture in the Rwenzori sub-region continues with WWF Uganda leading the efforts. Through a landscape approach, WWF-Uganda is actively involved in commercializing tree planting and building a sustainable wood industry. There are several projects under WWF-Uganda focusing on Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) in collaboration with other development partners. WWF-Uganda ensures that these restoration programs are coordinated to contribute to conservation and income generation, involving key stakeholders such as tree farmers and other wood consumers.


To support sustainable FLR, WWF-Uganda has made deliberate efforts to establish and strengthen local institutions. This includes the formation of District Tree Growers and Timber Dealers Cooperatives in districts such as Kisoro, Rubirizi, Rukungiri, and Kasese. Similarly, Tree Growers and Timber Dealers Associations have been formed in Bunyangabu, Kabarole, Ntoroko, and Bundibugyo districts. These efforts are evidenced by the development of strategic plans and roadmaps for these associations and cooperatives.


Furthermore, District Forestry Development Plans (DFDPs) have been developed and implemented in Kisoro, Rubirizi, Rukungiri, and Kasese districts. To date, Kabale, Rubanda, and Kanungu districts are nearing completion on their DFDPs. The process has recently begun in Bunyangabu, Kabarole, Ntoroko, and Bundibugyo districts.


This second phase of the Hempel Foundation-funded project "Restoration for Resilient Rwenzori (R3)" aims to expand restoration efforts within Rwenzori Mountains National Park (RMNP). The objective is to strengthen local institutionalization and implementation models for FLR that can support both conservation objectives and economic growth. Against this
back drop, the target is for the Rwenzori districts (Bunyangabu, Kabarole, Ntoroko, and Bundibugyo) to develop their forestry sectors by identifying gaps objectively through wider stakeholder involvement. All these efforts will be embedded within the DFDPs.


The Framework for the development of the District Forestry Plan is derived from Local Government Act 1997, and National Development Plan 2021-2025 and the National Forestry and Tree Planting Act, 2003. These pieces of legislation are implemented through the National Forestry and Tree Planting Regulations, 2016 which under schedule 2, section 8 requires Districts to prepare the Forestry Plans and provides steps to be followed.
Objectives

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Work with the District Technical Planning Committees (DPTC) to constitute and engage District level relevant stakeholders in the participatory development of the District forestry development plans.

  • Provide technical and logistical Support to the DTPCs to carry-out platforms as stipulated in the District Forestry Development Plan formulation procedure derived from schedule 2 of the National Forestry and Tree planting regulations, 2016

  • Conduct a comprehensive geo-spatial analysis of Landuse and Land Cover (LULC) trends and generate detailed forest cover maps and scenario models/ projections to inform the level of effort required to restore and conserve forest resources across Bunyangabu, Kabarole, Ntoroko, and Bundibugyo districts

  • Undertake forest inventory and map the threats to the forestry sector in each district.

  • Work with the DTPC to identify gaps in forest management, determine their underlying causes, and propose appropriate management actions.

  • Recommend actions to ensure relevant partners are actively involved in district forestry development plan activities.

  • Support the DTPC to Develop fully adaptive and practical District forestry development plans for the target districts.
