Uganda’s Contribution to Refugee Protection and Management (UNDP, 2017) [text via ReliefWeb]
- "Using a static accounting approach, the analysis of data shows that the Government of Uganda and local communities are spending over US$323 million in 2016/17 on the protection and management of refugees, and the provision of essential services, which is equivalent to 46 percent of the education budget for the year or 62 percent of the health budget. This is significant for a low-income country like Uganda with a per capita income of over US$ 764."
