Desk review for the Uganda refugee response

As the need to integrate private sector actors in the Ugandan refugee response continues to grow, a number of key points shape the conversation on moving PSE forward in Uganda, especially;

  • More cross-sectoral and equitable partnerships that take advantage of the varied experiences and skills that different actors bring.
  • Need for broader information sharing on the opportunities, gaps, and success stories of PSE in refugee response.
  • Flexible financing that incentivizes impact and de-risks new initiatives is also promoted as an enabler of PSE
  • More stringent impact assessments of PSE activities
  • Strengthening of an accountability mechanism that ensures ethical engagement.

This desk review collated the body of existing literature on refugee response PSE to create a widely available pool of knowledge that supports evidence-based decisions and practices in the Uganda refugee response.

It covers 17 reports from Uganda-based refugee response implementers or relevant to the Uganda context.
