The European Union (EU) has earmarked €2.9m (over Shs12.5 billion) to boost two disaster risk management projects in the refugee host districts of Isingiro, Kyegegwa, Kamwenge, and Kikuube.
The two projects are; strengthening resilience through enhanced local disaster risk management capacities. And strengthening emergency preparedness and inclusive natural resources management in refugee-hosting districts.
The two European Union projects will be implemented separately by Oxfam Uganda and Care International respectively. It will take about 33 months and will benefit at least 839,750 people.
