Development Response to Displacement in the Horn of Africa – (Uganda Project)

In January 2016 JBN Consults and Planners was assigned by the Office of Prime Minister (Uganda) to prepare Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) for the Regional Operation on Development Response to Displacement in the Horn of Africa – (Uganda Project).The assignment aimed at providing guidance on how environmental and social aspects can be identified, assessed and managed.

The World Bank launched the Regional Initiative in Support of the Horn of Africa (HOA) covering eight countries – Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda. The initiative was built on two interrelated pillars: (i) vulnerability and resilience; and (ii) economic opportunity and integration to address key drivers of instability and promote development in HOA. The Proposed Development Objective was to improve access to social services, expand economic opportunities and enhance environmental management for host and forcibly displaced households in the targeted areas of Djibouti, Ethiopia and Uganda.
