With funding from the United States Agency for International Development, through Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity & Peace (USAID/SAFE) Program, ULA has started implementing a one-year project entitled "Improving Access to Land Justice: Reducing Vulnerability Increasing Tenure Security" (IMPARTS) in the sub-counties of Rupa, Tapac, Katikekile and Nadunget in Moroto district.


 ULA is working with civil society organizations in oil-rich areas of northern Uganda to protect land rights of communities which will be affected by oil production and related projects. Thousands of households will be displaced to give way to developments in the petroleum sector. ULA is working with grassroots CSOs to increase focus on land related issues in regard to the extractive industry to protect people's rights.


Uganda Land Alliance, in conjunction with women land rights advocates, civil society organisations and local governments held events in different parts of the country to mark the International Rural Women's Day. Women and men in Amuru, Pader, Kotido, Katakwi, Apac and Napak districts participated in assemblies to recognize the role of rural women in development.
