Key Duties and Responsibilities: 
·       Research on water and related natural resources management in a refugee context, West Nile
·       Environmental degradation is a common occurrence across Uganda, and among hosts and refugees’ settlements. This comes along with challenges related to water access and natural resources management.

A research study will be undertaken in refugee settlements in West Nile to examine issues related to management of natural resources, socioeconomic aspects and NGO-refugee relationships.
·       Through stakeholder interviews, in-field observations, and other means, the Trainees (1 Ugandan + 1 Dutch) will;
·       Determine current practices, challenges and possible solutions related to the management of water and related resources in the refugee settlement and host communities
