Additional Information

This report presents the findings of a research study examining the experiences of migrants from rural Karamoja to the  towns of Moroto and Mbale. The study and report are based on a research partnership between Save the Children in Uganda (SCiUG) and the Feinstein International Center (FIC) of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. FIC researchers (hereafter called the Tufts team) worked with SCiUG from 2009-2011 on a series of discrete studies to investigate areas of mutual interest in Karamoja. The research findings from these studies are designed to inform programming, planning and advocacy in the area of livelihood interventions.
