Uganda

We worked in Uganda from 1987 to 2018.

Our work focused on addressing the economic dimensions of peace and conflict, with a particular focus on the oil industry and the northern Uganda recovery process.

This included monitoring the impact of the government-led Peace, Recovery and Development Plan on peace and conflict in the north. 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 aim was to help address the unequal and ethnically-charged distribution of resources and economic opportunities in the country, which were contributing to mounting tensions and conflict.
