As of July this year, we have a newly appointed a National Focal Point for the Republic of Uganda. This action follows an unanimous decision to invite the country to be a member at the Senior Officials Meeting in Addis Ababa on 6th April 2017.

It was widely agreed that the Process would greatly benefit from the participation of Uganda, given that it is also at the forefront of the challenges posed by increasing migratory flows in the Eastern African region. This coupled with the fact that Uganda has experience in provision of long term solutions for the high numbers of refugees and migrants hosted on the territory of the country; Uganda will be an asset to the knowledge and expertise within the Process.
