‘Refugee livelihoods and the private sector: Ugandan case study’ Working Paper by Dr Naohiko Omata
In recent academic and policy debates in forced migration the issue of how to understand and support the livelihoods of refugees has emerged as a pressing agenda due to the large number of protracted refugee situations globally. One of the major difficulties UNHCR faces in prolonged displacement is diminished donor interest in supporting these long-term refugees (Jacobsen 2005). As a result, assistance programmes for protracted refugee situations have been constantly deprived of adequate funding.
