Country Snapshot: Uganda

Uganda is particularly vulnerable to disasters, and droughts in particular impact the economy. The NUSAF III program aims to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable households against natural disasters. During the 2016 El Niño drought, US$4 million was rapidly mobilized through NUSAF to finance disaster response. This project has a US$12 million disaster risk finance (DRF) component, with two objectives: (i) to develop the processes and systems in government that can be used to rapidly identify and respond to shock events, and (ii) to finance additional support to vulnerable households immediately following a disaster or shock through an automatic expansion (scaling up) of the LIPW activities under NUSAF III
