The Karamoja region of northeast Uganda has a long history of violent conflict and under-development. Since 2011 the region has entered a period of relative peace and stability, and is now receiving a wide range of government and aid programs, with involvement from multiple international aid donors and NGOs. But what is working and why? Which approaches need reshaping? What can be scaled up, and where is the evidence to support this?
The KRSU focuses on:
- Assisting USAID/Uganda to strenghten its resilience programs and policy support in Karamoja
- Providing strategic, programmatic and logisitical support to the Karamoja Development Partners Group
- Providing capacity-building support to the Government of Uganda for their policies and programs in Karamoja
- Generating an evidence base and ensuring analytical support using reviews, studies and evaluations and similar activities.
