With funding support from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Refugee Law Project has built capacity of Uganda Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF) officers as part of the wider project on "Promoting the Uptake of the International Protocol on Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict".
This 5 minute video clip highlights the benefit of these training to the UPDF officers so far.
This training is aimed at building awareness among the UPDF on Conflict-Related Sexual Violence (CRSV) and to build their skills in the documentation and investigation of CRSV for accountability purposes. UPDF Spokespersons, Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) and officers in the UGABAG XXI & XXII contingents prior to deployment in Somalia on the AMISOM peace keeping mission have benefited from this training.
