Katwe II Slum

Uganda

Although Uganda is rural, with only 18% urbanized land, it is among the most rapidly urbanizing countries in sub-Saharan Africa.  According to World Bank indicators, 53.6% of Uganda’s urban population was living in slums as of 2015. To meet nutrition and WASH challenges, among others, the Ugandan government and partnering organizations have made progress developing policies and strategies that address the urban poor. The assessment findings highlight additional gaps and opportunities to use evidence to inform action.
