Uganda

In Uganda we addressed the economic dimensions of peace and conflict, with a particular focus on the oil industry and the northern Uganda recovery process.

We monitored the impact of the government-led Peace, Recovery and Development Plan on peace and conflict in northern Uganda. We promoted transparency, accountability and conflict sensitivity in the oil industry. We also worked with business leaders, the government, civil society and communities to ensure that business and investment supported peace.

Our work was important because the unequal and ethnically-charged distribution of resources and economic opportunities were contributing to mounting tensions and conflict in the country.

We worked in Uganda from 1987 to 2018.
