Governance and livelihoods in Uganda's oil-rich Albertine Graben

This report measures the degree and quality of change in the livelihoods of the communities in Uganda's Albertine Graben region, where oil exploration is taking place.

The main objective of the survey was to establish baseline data needed to measure the degree and quality of change in the livelihoods of the communities where oil exploration is taking place.

In doing so, it seeks to contribute to a more just and conflict-sensitive development of the oil and gas sector by looking at livelihoods and governance in Uganda’s oil-rich Albertine Graben to date.

This baseline study employed both qualitative and quantitative approaches. It was carried out in 13 districts that were purposely selected from the Albertine region, covering the sub-regions of Acholi, Bunyoro, Kigezi, Rwenzori and West Nile.
