THE GOVERNMENT has been urged to come up with another programme to improve the livelihoods of the people of northern Uganda as the Peace, Recovery and Development Plan (PRDP II) winds up.

 

“Most citizens are wondering what is going to happen after PRDP II winds up in 2015. Are we going to see different interventions that will change the lives of the people that were affected by a two-decade war in the region?” Geraldine O’Callaghan asked.

O’callaghan, the governance and security team leader and senior governance advisor of the British Department for International Development was speaking during a breakfast meeting for donors, Acholi and Lango sub-region leaders and civil society organisations at Protea Hotel in Kampala yesterday. The meeting, organised by International Alert, was aimed at assessing the impact of PRDP II in the region.

O’Callaghan emphasised the need to collect the views of the people in northern Uganda instead of the Government, NGOs and donors merely imposing programmes on them.
Robert Esuruku, the head of research at International Alert, pointed out that people in the region were concerned about corruotion that has prevented them from reaping the fruits of the programmes.
