Special Report - FAO/GIEWS Livestock and Market Assessment Mission to Karamoja Region, Uganda - 3 April 2014

Mission Highlights

• Following improved security conditions, pastoralists have returned to the pre-protected kraal system seasonal grazing patterns, being free to carry-out traditional management practices inherent to the right to roam, with consequent better access to pasture and water.

• Despite a two-dekad dry spell in May-June, rainfall performance has been generally good along the season, with positive effects on grazing resources availability as confirmed by satellite-based data showing above long-term average vegetation growth across the region.

RRMP - Evaluation multisectorielle à Nobili du 26 au 28 juillet 2013

  1. Résumé

2.1. Contexte

Sécurité :

La situation sécuritaire dans la zone Kamango reste volatile mais, elle est plus ou moins calme dans celle de Nobili. La zone est contrôlée par le 2ème bataillon du 801ème Régiment des FARDC basée à Mutwanga.

La présence des FARDC dans la zone rassure tant soit peu la population déplacée se trouvant à Nobili mais, celle-ci voudrait voir l’armée loyaliste progresser sur la ligne de front et faciliter leu retour dans leurs villages de provenance.

Land Disputes in Acholiland - A Conflict and Market Assessment

Report
Mercy Corps

Executive Summary

More than 20 years of armed conflict between the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Ugandan government displaced more than 1.7 million people and stalled development in northern Uganda’s Acholiland. Over the past several years, peace has returned to the region, and more than 90% of internally displaced people (IDPs) have returned to their villages of origin or locations close to home. The peaceful reintegration of returnees as well as the development of the region is undermined, however, by ongoing conflict over land.

Cattle Raiding in Karamoja: A conflict & market assessment

Report
Mercy Corps

While the links between poverty and conflict are widely recognized, economic development interventions and peacebuilding interventions are often implemented separately. This results in missed opportunities to harness economic development to promote peace and to open the doors to development by reducing violence. To address this gap, Mercy Corps conducted a combined conflict and market assessment looking at the relationship between cattle raiding and economic development in the Karamoja region of Uganda.
