NAPE, NAWAD & WomanKindwildwide will be launching a new report - Digging Deep: the impact of Uganda’s land rush on
The eco-feminist movement in Uganda has identified changing patterns of land use as a major problem affecting women across the country. While land has long been a focus of conflict, the most recent wave of dispute is caused by the land rush – investors purchasing or leasing land for mining or the production of cash crops. This is resulting in forced evictions, displacement, loss of livelihoods and violence against women and girls.
