The FAO Representation in Uganda provides technical assistance to the Government of Uganda in the Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Climate Change, Food Security and Livelihoods and related sectors. Since late March 2022, the Uganda border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has seen high levels of displacement due to the escalation of violence in North Kivu province in DRC. In parallel, the caseload of South-Sudanese arrivals to the West Nile region has increased since January 2022 due to ethnic clashes, persecution, insecurity, cattle raids, and environmental factors (e.g., flooding and drought). As a result of these situations, as of 06 October 2022, 110,625 new arrivals were recorded in Uganda in 2022, of which 74,147 arrived from DRC and 36,478 from South Sudan. These new arrivals add to the more than 1.5 million refugees already hosted in Uganda and put pressure on the settlements to which they are relocated. The individuals crossing the border are generally received in reception and holding centres before being relocated to established settlements. This influx has been adding to the 1.5 million refugees already being hosted by Uganda, many of which have been established for decades but are still facing issues surrounding integration into Ugandan society, access to services, access to sustainable livelihoods and protection. The Refugee Response Specialist will actively design and manage programming in order to respond to the above issues.
Under the overall supervision of the FAO Representative (FAOR), in consultation with the Deputy FAOR, the incumbent reports to the Food Security and Livelihoods Coordinator.
The main responsibility is to ensure quality programming and coordination of FAO’s partners in FAO’s Refugee Response Programme
