Latest Uganda Refugee News

To improve access to and use of evidence and research, Andie Lambe created a monthly Newsletter and associated website that shares research relevant to the Uganda Refugee Response. With her permission, U-Learn is sharing links to selected resources that were published in November 2023.

Refugee Participation

We believe that empowering refugees to shape how aid is designed and delivered is key. In line with Grand Bargain Objective 6 (Participation Revolution), U-Learn supports refugees’ meaningful participation in national policy-making and decision-making for Uganda.

Our work streams

Accountability To Affected Populations (AAP)

We focus on supporting the practical application of AAP knowledge and skills in refugee response programs in Uganda.


We promote greater engagement of local and national actors in all stages of refugee response through documenting good practices and facilitating partnerships.


As a key concept in Uganda’s refugee-level policies, self-reliance is a focus area for U-Learn. We highlight activities most critical to reducing refugees’ vulnerability and long-term reliance on aid.

Our work streams

Sustainable Livelihoods

Promoting sustainable livelihoods means embracing cost-effective approaches to refugee self-reliance. U-Learn strengthens existing evidence on increasing productivity of, and access to these approaches, and expanding skills and income.

Financial Inclusion

In line with the global shift towards using Cash and Voucher Assistance in humanitarian response, U-Learn is growing the evidence base on Financial Inclusion and convening key actors to harmonize the Cash and social protection work in the Uganda refugee response.

Private Sector Engagement

Private sector actors play an important role in supporting refugee self-reliance. U-Learn promotes the uptake of private sector innovations in refugee response and fosters linkages between refugees and existing markets.

Humanitarian Development Nexus

U-Learn advances cross-sectoral collaboration and curates information on activities that build refugee resilience. Protracted crises require a more coherent refugee response that integrates humanitarian relief with long-term development assistance.

Our work streams

Integrated Response

We create spaces for refugee response actors to come together to share knowledge and coordinate activities. Encouraging multi-sectoral engagements is essential to addressing refugees’ needs throughout different phases of displacement.
