Saferworld in Uganda
Following decades of conflict, Uganda is now in a state of relative peace and economic growth. However, there are still serious threats to stability. Social divisions and disputes over land, oil and minerals are fuelling corruption and conflict.
Saferworld has been working in Uganda since 2001. We work with communities, civil society organisations, the private sector and the government to prevent and reduce conflict. Our work focuses on improving governance, ensuring that safety and security services are responsive to people’s needs, and reducing violence related to gender, elections, land, access to weapons, power and resources.
