STRUCTURE OF THE UGANDA HUMANITARIAN PROFILE 2012
PART 1. CONTEXT OVERVIEW INTRODUCTION
The Uganda humanitarian profile 2012 is the second version after a decision was made to end the Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) in Uganda. It builds on the humanitarian profile for 2011 to provide an update on the humanitarian issues in the country. This is both a preparedness and resource mobilization tool which is updated every year to inform government and the humanitarian community on key humanitarian issues in the country.
Disaster loss and damage is on the rise in Uganda with grave consequences for the survival, dignity and livelihood of our citizens, particularly the poor. It also erodes Uganda’s and hard-earned development gains. Disaster risk is increasingly becoming a global concern and its impact in one region can have a corresponding effect on lives and livelihoods in another, and vice versa.
