Settlement-level Actor Mapping

Welcome to the settlement-level actor mapping visualisation. In order to facilitate collaboration between national-level and settlement-level stakeholders, U-Learn maps actors that operate in refugee settlements across Uganda, and makes the information publicly available on this page. All actor groups included in the mapping implement activities at the settlement-level, and are not currently included in the Uganda refugee response coordination system sector mappings, which can be found on the Uganda Comprehensive Refugee response portal: Uganda Comprehensive Refugee response portal.

This map of Uganda shows the 13 refugee settlements, and Kampala as an urban centre where refugees are settled. The map is the entry point for the visualisation. Please click one or multiple settlements on the map; these will be pre-selected as filters. To unselect a settlement, click on the name again. Click on ‘start’ when you’re ready to see the organisations that are active in those settlements. On the next page you can add more filters, see your selection, and see details about the organisations that are part of the mapping.
