ACT Appeal Uganda: Re-settlement program in Northern Uganda - AFUG91


Appeal Target: US$ 2,731,452

Geneva, 12 December 2008

Dear Colleagues,

The humanitarian situation across much of conflict-affected northern Uganda continues to progress along the transition from humanitarian to recovery and development action. In 2009, distinct humanitarian needs will continue to require a coordinated response, even as recovery and development are recognised as the dominant thinking across the majority of existing areas of operations where ACT members in Uganda are operating. The humanitarian action outlined in this appeal for Uganda should be considered as an essential support to promote further gains such as those made since the signing of the original Cessation of Hostilities between the Government of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in August 2006, despite the lack of a conclusive end to the peace process. It is vital, however, that added urgency be placed on increasing the impact of recovery and development activities by both the Government of Uganda and the international community in their areas of comparative advantage in order to consolidate these peace dividends.

This appeal which contains ACT International members the Lutheran World Federation Uganda program and the Church of Uganda, Planning, Development and Rehabilitation Department (PDR) requests a total of USD 2,731,452 in order to meet the most urgent humanitarian needs of approximately 440,000 vulnerable individuals across six districts in the northern region of humanitarian operations in 2009.
