A case study on the Karamoja region: the status of land

A study on the status of land under wildlife, forestry and mining concessions in the Karamoja Region, Uganda, has been completed by Trocaire Uganda and Oxfam GB. It aims to factually ground interventions for securing tenure and livelihoods on contemporary and up-to-date information. Findings show that communities are vulnerable to internal and external loss of land without information that empowers them to protect, negotiate and participate in land ownership, use and management. In four chapters, the report details changes generated by the degazetting of conservation areas in 2002 and the current status of forest reserves in Karamoja region, including community views on their existence and utilisation.
