In Uganda we address the economic dimensions of peace and conflict, with a particular focus on the new oil industry and the northern Uganda recovery process.
We monitor the impact of the government-led Peace, Recovery and Development Plan on peace and conflict in northern Uganda. We promote transparency, accountability and conflict-sensitivity in the oil industry. We also work with business leaders, the government, civil society and communities to ensure that business and investment support peace.
Our work is important because the unequal and ethnically-charged distribution of resources and economic opportunities are contributing to mounting tensions and conflict in the country.
We have been working in Uganda since 1987.
