AGIAMONDO Co-worker about their daily work and life in Uganda

The land department of the diocese of Moroto plays an important role in the challenging circumstances of the Karamoja region. Violent clashes regularly occur here due to resource discoveries, population growth and cattle rustling, which have a major impact on the daily lives of the Karamajong population. In this context, there is an urgent need for education on land rights issues. The Land Unit is particularly committed to protecting communal land through collective land titles in order to prevent land grabbing and secure people's livelihoods.
