   TAAC MONITORING

     Transparency Accountability and Anti-Corruption

This component is implemented by the Inspectorate of Government who established Indapendent community monitoring groups (CMGs) in all the Parishes where DRDIP is located. This component involves sensitization and awareness creation, engagement of citizens and stakeholders, project monitoring and inspects and enforcement through investigation and prosecution.

CDD MONITORING

Community Driven Demand for Social-Economic Services, Infrastructure and Procurement

The Project utilizes a community driven development approach. The target communities are engaged so they participate in determining their social-economic needs or gaps and then in putting forward proposals of the type of investments or interventions they desire. The project beneficiaries are also entrusted with initiating and managing the procurement process for the inputs required for the various subprojects or interventions. This creates a higher level of ownership, accountability and reduces the risk of corruption.

ESS MONITORING

Environment and Social Safeguards

The implementation of DRDIP takes implements and mainstreams the existing National and World Bank policies on environmental and social safeguards management. This is to ensure that all the subprojects implemented are environmentally and socially sound and sustainable, and that decision-making is improved through appropriate analysis of actions and of their likely environmental and social risks as well as impacts.


DEVELOPMENT RESPONSE TO DISPLACEMENT IMPACTS  PROJECT

The Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project (DRDIP) is intended to address expanded development needs by the refugee hosting districts in the country. The project addresses the unmet social, economic and environmental needs identified in the local host communities in fifteen districts of Arua, Terego, Madi-OkolloKoboko, Yumbe, Moyo, Obongi and Adjumani in West Nile sub-region, Lamwo in Acholi sub-region, Kiryandongo Kikuube and Hoima in Bunyoro sub-region and Isingiro, Kamwenge and Kyegegwa in South West sub-region.

DRDIP Project Expectations

The Project focuses on the refugees and the host communities that have experienced negative impacts due to refugee presence. These include those sub counties  that are impacted by the refugee presence in the district. The project primary beneficiaries are nationals and the refugees in the hosting sub counties. It is expected to benefit a total of 1,510,7593 host and 1,250,0004 refugee population and will support an area based planning approach which will enable the communities to identify and prioritize investments with specific focus on women and youth, who are disproportionately affected by the displacement. The project was initially implemented over a period of five years in the eleven  districts of Arua,  Koboko, Yumbe,  Moyo,  Adjumani in the West Nile sub region, Kiryandongo and Hoima in Bunyoro sub-region, Lamwo district in Acholi sub region and Isingiro, Kamwenge and Kyegegwa districts in South-Western Uganda but over the years it has been expanded to four more districts namely Terego, Madi-Okollo and  Obongi in West-Nile and Kikuube in Bunyoro Sub-regions.

The DRDIP Strategy

DRDIP Project Components

There are four major project components implemented in an integrated and sequenced fashion, focusing on mobilization and capacity building for communities and local governments

COMPONENT 1: Social and Economic Services and Infrastructure 
The Social and economic services and infrastructure component is comprised of three subcomponents namely

1. Community Investment Fund

2. Capacity Building for Local Planning and Decentralized Service Delivery

3. Displacement Crisis Response Mechanism
COMPONENT 2: Sustainable Environmental Management
The Sustainable Environmental Management component is subdivided into two subcomponents namely

1. Integrated Natural Resources Management

2. Access to Energy

COMPONENT 3: Livelihood Program
The Livelihood Program component is subdivided into two subcomponents namely

1. Support to Community Livelihoods,

2. Strengthening the Capacity Community Organizations for Livelihoods
COMPONENT 4: Project Policy and Accountability Systems Support and Administration
This component is subdivided into three subcomponents namely

1. Strengthened Transparency, Accountability, and Anti-corruption

Community Based Watershed Development Approach 


DRDIP project implementation is based on the Watershed Development Approach. A watershed is a geographical boundary described as a water catchment area that has a beginning, an end; a high ground, a middle ground and a lower ground. It is recommended that community facilitators should know everything about the communities and households in their assigned watersheds 


Watershed Development Approach Requires the Following

1.The knowledge of the population characteristics dynamics and demographics like number of elderly, youth, children, disabled etc., and where are they located within the catchment area. This helps in guiding the communities on their development choices of building institutional capacity. For that reason, it   must be integrated and interlinked with the sectorial development plans
2. Natural Resource Management within the catchment area. This focuses on national resources that already exist in the watershed.  It involves management and conversation of water bodies, drainage systems, vegetation and the environment in general and should cover the following aspects;
  • Multi year planning
  • Systematic and sequential
  • Draw from rural development plans
  • Draw from technical guidance
  • Multi stakeholder involvement

3. Social cohesion involving bringing households and communities together and organizing them into groups, then empowering different groups according to their strengths or areas of competitive advantage.

 4. Work in sync with the development plans of sectors like the Ministry of Water and the Environment or the Ministry of Agriculture or the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA).

5.  Planning together and creating a social order in order to successfully implement development plans. This should support strengthening of the local skills, knowledge and experience.

.6.  Respect for the local cultures and indigenous people. CBWD plans for communities and watershed groups and committees should maintain good records of their plans and the progress of implementation

Project Funding

THE MONEY TRAIL IN SUB-PROJECTS FUNDING 
The Prime Minister's Office (OPM) disburses subproject funds from the local currency account to the OPM District Support Account. From here the funds are transferred to the Local Government (LG) Treasury Single Account (TSA) held at Bank of Uganda (for those districts operating on IFMS Tier1). From the TSA, the funds are further transferred to the respective DRDIP district subproject accounts from where funds Project Implementation Manual / DRDIP37 and subsequently disbursed to the subprojects bank accounts opened up in commercial banks to fund contractors, agencies and institutional user committees (SMCs, HCMCs) and others directly implementing subprojects. In cases where the district doesn’t operate on IFMS, the funds are transferred directly from the OPM DRDIP district support account to the DRDIP district subprojects accounts held at commercial banks at the districts.
