Summit call to action

The situation in Uganda is a major test of the commitments made in the New York Declaration. Uganda cannot handle the massive refugee crisis alone.


  • Fulfill the commitments contained in the New York Declaration by providing the required resources and support for Uganda to maintain and promote asylum space for refugees.
  • Support Uganda to enhance basic services and develop human capital in refugee-hosting districts through funding, new partnerships, investments and innovative initiatives.
  • Commit to work in every way possible for the prevention of conflict, the peaceful settlement of disputes, and the achievement of long-term political solutions and moreover resolve to support regional initiatives to address the root causes of the conflicts in order to create conditions that are conducive to large-scale voluntary return in safety and dignity.
