The project was implemented in Imvepi refugee settlement, covering zone 2 and 3 of refugee settlement and 4 parishes of Odupi sub county host communities in Arua and Palorinya refugee settlement zone 3 East and West of the settlement and 3 parishes of Ttula sub county host communities in Moyo district. It details the background and purpose of the survey, the methodology employed, the findings and discussion, conclusions and recommendations. The overall project objective is to provide emergency livelihood support to 2,250 refugees and hosting community members in target areas.

The methodology; The PDM/evaluation survey was a cross-sectional that used mixed research approaches involving quantitative and qualitative methods. The survey adopted a 4 way mixed approach method of household interviews, key informant interviews, focus group discussions and observations to collect data for purposes of complementarity, triangulation, and validation of responses.

There was evidence of exceeding the target of planned activities with 207.7 kilometers of rehabilitated roads, 53.3 kilometres of new roads in Arua and Moyo district, 2.1 kms of drainage channel opened, constructed 1 community hall, 2 market shades with 32 stalls, 11 culvert bridge lines on 8 bridges, one sports recreation ground, 23 garbage pits and one valley dam for completion.

The findings; shows that the community received the project positively as highlighted by their active participation in engagement meetings, mobilisation and trainings. The selection processes of beneficiaries was reported by over ninety five (95.5%) percent against 4.5% to have been fair and satisfactorily. The project considered the most vulnerable households in selection process of beneficiaries as indicated by respondents over sixty eight (68.3%) percent of the beneficiaries were considered because they were poor while 23.5% were vulnerable and the rest 8.2% were people with households of people with challenged persons/disabilities.

The survey further established that the respondents expectations were included in the project design by involving them at all stages of project implementation. They said that they were also consulted on the kind of projects they preferred and participated in monitoring and reporting on the project through periodic reflection reviews. The records further revealed that 100% of participants completed 30 working days and (98%) of beneficiaries had received their payments while only 2% indicated that they had not received the funds by the time of the survey this was attributed to technical error in registering the sim cards, and transferring funds by the service provider.

The challenges observed was unfavourable weather and unreliable rainfall conditions affecting the project areas. It was observed that the rain season in the area is not reliable after the month of September, this affected tree planting during the dry season that limits survival growth of the tree.

In conclusion, the survey team observed that the project was implemented within the timeframe of 5 months, and realized the project target, though we would recommend increase of timeframe to support mentorship of beneficiaries and create time space for reflection. There is a need to reduce the gender gap among the beneficiaries by increasing the male participants to at least 40% of beneficiaries. Lastly, the team recommended strong integration and promotion of advocacy skills by allocating enough time to support the beneficiaries psychosocial healing need to sustain the impact and outcomes of the project
