Katakwi LRIC was opened in 2009 to create awareness on land rights, ownership, succession and inheritance. The centre is located in the heart of Katakwi town, Amuge road, opposite Petimma House in Eastern Uganda.

The centre is of significant importance in the area given its history of violent tribal clashes over land and other natural resources.  For over 30 years, people lived in internally displaced people¡¯s camps due to insurgency orchestrated by Karamojongs against the Ateso through cattle rustling. Following government¡¯s disarmament program, people started resettling in villages which sparked off land conflicts. 


The centre covers five sub counties namely: Ongongoja, Ngariam, Omodoi, Magoro and Palam.
