Uganda is Africa's largest refugee hosting country, and one of the three largest refugee-hosting countries in the world, because of its proximity to neighbouring countries that have known political instability in the last decades, and its generally favourable refugee protection mechanisms.

For this project, MIEUX+ partnered with the Municipal Council of Nebbi, Yumbe Town Council and the NGO Urban Afrikanischer Traum to strengthen their capacities to mainstream migration into local urban planning in a coordinated and effective manner.

As part of the outcomes of this Action, MIEUX+ team and experts, in collaboration with the partner produced a comprehensive assessment report on the capacities of Yumbe and Nebbi municipalities, and an assessment of internal systems and processes to provide requisite remedial measures and improve specific institutional capacities.
