Description

Between February and July 2018, the World Bank commissioned the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to undertake a “Rapid Diagnostic Assessment of Land and Natural Resources Degradation in Areas Impacted by South Sudan Refugee Influx in Uganda”. This work was undertaken in close collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE). The aim of the assessment was to determine the environmental impacts of the refugee influx, with a focus on forest resources, and propose appropriate intervention options to mitigate pressure on the environment and support energy access to the refugee and host communities.
