Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Uganda hosts an estimated 1.3 million refugees. It is Africa’s largest refugee hosting country and one of the top five worldwide. Throughout 2017, Uganda responded to three concurrent emergency influxes: South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Burundi. The profile of new arrivals is characterized by a high proportion of women and children, currently representing approximately 84 percent of the new arrivals.
The Government of Uganda continues to strengthen the refugee-hosting environment through the Settlement Transformative Agenda included in its five-year National Development Plan II (NDP II 2016-2020). The UN Country Team and the World Bank are supporting the Government of Uganda through the Refugee and Host Population Empowerment (ReHoPE) strategy, which is integrated into the UN Development Assistance Framework for Uganda (UNDAF 2016-2020). These strategic initiatives are aligned with the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) of the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants. Uganda was the first country to officially roll-out the CRRF.

Key priorities

In 2018, Uganda, in collaboration with the international community, with an objective of streamlining risk management within the operation intends to pursue its application of a CRRF approach in the following five areas:
  • emergency response and protection;
  • peaceful co-existence with local communities;
  • self-reliance and resilient livelihoods;                        
  • integration of social services delivery in local government systems; and
durable solutions for refugees and stateless persons.
