Results & Indicators

Expected Results

The response was designed to directly respond to the 5 strategic priorities outlined in the revised RRP:
1) Lifesaving protection and multi-sector humanitarian response for newly arriving refugees
2) Stabilization of 7 new settlement areas, in particular with regard to water and sanitation, health and education facilities; establishment of child protection and SGBV prevention and response mechanisms
3) Livelihood support to reduce aid dependency and to fulfill the potential of Uganda’s good practice refugee policy
4) Environmental protection and mitigation measures in refugee hosting areas
5) Increase host community support in refugee hosting areas to reduce the burden on the host community

In response to the priorities outlined above, CLWR and LWF-Uganda will provide emergency lifesaving activities in Protection and WASH sectors, specifically focusing on SGBV prevention and response and improving hygiene and sanitation facilities for women, girls, men and boys in Lamwo and Moyo districts. Through proposed interventions in the health sector, LWF-Uganda will strengthen local service delivery to ensure both Ugandans and refugees have access to quality, gender-responsive health care services. Through the establishment of VSLAs, LWF-Uganda will enhance skills and provide livelihoods opportunities that enable women and men from the refugee and host communities to meet their immediate needs and prepare them to respond to future shocks. Throughout the entire response, LWF-Uganda will implement programming in such a way to mitigate effects on the environment and protect natural resources in refugee hosting sites.
