General

The Karamoja sub region has experienced displacement of poor vulnerable households due to government leasing of public land to new extractive companies and gazettement of public land into forest reserves. This has led many poor and vulnerable households to be displaced. The National Catholic Justice and Peace aims to promote access to food security through building capacity of local communities to advocate for access, use and security of land tenure and other natural resources in the Karamoja region and in Northern Uganda. The project will target 1,500 men, 1,300women, 250 girl's, 250 boys and 100PWDs. NCCJP will identify and raise advocacy issue to national level targeting relevant line ministries and government institutions. This increases project effectiveness and aligns project to national priorities. The national office increases efficiency through harmonization and simplification of programming processes and procedures. The national office will also ensure accountability to CAFOD and the partners at the lower level. Key tasks of NCCJP at the lower level will include spearheading identification of beneficiaries, data collection and training of community based animators/ volunteers/ resource persons. The community groups will be empowered to handle routine monitoring of activities, documentation and reporting to NCCJP.
