About Us

The Karamoja Resilience Support Unit (KRSU) is a four-year project of USAID/Uganda aimed at increasing resilience and economic development in the Karamoja Region of northeast Uganda. Its focus is on translating evidence into practice and fostering collaborative learning to strengthen policy environments and program impacts. KRSU activities investigate emerging trends, best practices, and promising strategies. They also identify gaps, challenges, and opportunities to improve pastoralist systems and livelihoods.

The Karamoja Resilience Support Unit is implemented by Tufts University’s Feinstein International Center, at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. The KRSU main office is in Kampala, Uganda.

Framework

The KRSU framework emphasizes the exchange and uptake of evidence-based knowledge. It is meant to catalyze collaboration, mutual learning, and adaptation in order to tap into proven resilience-building strategies and technologies.
