    Uganda is one of the largest refugee hosting countries in Africa, with more than 1.1 million refugees. The Uganda Refugee Policy (2006) and the Refugee Regulations (2010) grant refugees wide-ranging rights hinged on a strategy of allocating refugees land, freedom of movement and the right to seek employment. This policy aims to build refugees’ food, nutrition and income security and self-reliance. The framework provides an opportunity to support early recovery of affected populations and create a foundation for self-sufficiency. Under the leadership of the Office of Prime Minister (OPM) of the Government of Uganda, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and OPM produced a report on the food security, resilience and well-being of refugee and host communities in Northern Uganda in collaboration with the Uganda Bureau of Statics (UBOS), the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). The study aims to provide policy makers with evidence-based policy and programming recommendations to support the overall social integration and resilience of refugees in Uganda, in alignment with the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF).
