KEY MESSAGE: Users of the Toolkit are encouraged to enrich their narratives with relevant information about realities and prospects in their sphere of expertise, whether humanitarian or development or at sector level.
This Toolkit is a reference guide for those conducting advocacy and mobilizing support to address the comprehensive requirements of refugees and host communities in Uganda. It should be read in conjunction with the Concept Note on the Solidarity Summit.
Summary of Requirements for a Comprehensive Refugee Response in Uganda
Uganda hosts over 1.2 million refugees in 28 settlements in 12 districts (including Kampala) where refugees coexist peacefully with their host communities. The Ugandan model provides refugees with exemplary prospects for dignity, normality and self-reliance, and creates a conducive environment for pursuing development-oriented approaches.
