Uganda and the Japanese government Thursday signed a US$14.5m (sh33b) grant agreement for promoting the resettlement of Internally Displaced People(IDPs) in Northern Uganda.
Finance minister Maria Kiwanuka who signed on behalf of Uganda said the grant would support Northern Uganda which faces a mammoth task to rebuild.
