About the Project

#Land-evictions-in-Uganda is a research-based project that monitors, documents, investigates, and analyses previous and current land evictions in Uganda.

The portal is a project being sustained by smallholder farmers that on daily basis report cases of land evictions occurring in their localities. 

It’s supported by independent researchers who combine academic rigor with investigations and analysis to aggregate and mine data to suit the needs of our followers. 

This project intends to answer questions about land evictions and their impact on citizens’ access and use of land; the importance of responsible investments that respects human rights. 

The land-eviction-portal believes that access to information is crucial to achieving good land governance and securing land rights for vulnerable and minority communities in Uganda.
