We saw what was done but not our will was done: Assessing the impact of the Peace, Recovery and Development Plan 1 in northern Uganda
The Peace Recovery Development Plan (PRDP) was launched in 2009 after an elongated planning process which began in 2007. It was designed to address the needs of Northern Uganda as it emerged from two decades of conflict. The multi-donor framework, focused on four areas: consolidation of state authority, rebuilding and empowering communities, economic revitalisation and peacebuilding and reconciliation. However, the document has struggled to achieve its stated ambitions.
This baseline study addresses the impact of PRDP I as a way of providing a baseline for the second phase, which began in July 2012. The study was done under the auspices of the Advisory Consortium on Conflict Sensitivity (ACCS). This looks to deliver contextual analysis of the overall recovery process focusing on conflict
indicators, actors and dynamics, identifying early warning messages for advocacy purposes.
