The primary objectives of this Political Economy Assessment (PEA) study are to: more fully understand the scope of the problems, challenges, and opportunities through a focused political economy analysis that will provide actionable recommendations and internal guidance for the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) when it comes to adapting existing projects and designing new interventions.
The PEA focus will be on the broad governance of natural resources, in particular the critical nexus of local and national government but the PEA will also look to address sector specific questions relating to the growth of the commercial oil industry and the expansion of commercial agriculture.
For each of these issues, JGI-Uganda has an urgent need for technical assistance to:
- Frame and assess the scope of the problems, challenges, and opportunities through focused political economy analyses
- Identify appropriate research questions, study design(s), and data collection methods and analysis
- Identify any significant information gaps and make recommendations for filling those gaps (e.g., baseline data collection to track improved implementation of ENR policies and laws)
- Recommend effective strategies for JGI-Uganda’s engagement with national as well as local government partners in support of better planned environment and natural resources management.
