Overview :

Uganda has hosted refugees from across Africa, and beyond, since the 1940s. Uganda’s refugee laws are among the most progressive in the world. Refugees and asylum seekers are entitled to work; have freedom of movement; and can access Ugandan social services, such as health and education. Based on its non-camp policy, Uganda provides refugees with land for living and agriculture in open settlements.

As the number of refugees and asylum seekers in Uganda crosses 1 million, government spending on refugee hosting remains unclear. Overall, government spending for the reception and integration of people seeking international protection varies significantly across countries. It is particularly difficult to assess given its distribution across various parts of the central government and across government levels. Spending related to refugee settlement and asylum covers many different items, ranging from the registration and processing of asylum applications, to providing long-term integration services. Without quantifying the costs, the Government of Uganda has been unable to accurately present the contribution Uganda makes to the global response to displacement.

Objective of the consultancy:

The objective of the consultancy is to provide research and analytical support to the Lead Consultant undertaking a study is to answer the central question: ‘How much is the Government of Uganda’s contribution to the refugee hosting?’. The Researcher will be responsible for collecting data related to the costs incurred by Ministries, Departments and Agencies towards providing services in relation to the hosting of refugees.
