The Karamoja Resilience Support Unit (KRSU) was a four-year (2014 to 2019) project of USAID/Uganda aimed at increasing resilience and economic development in the Karamoja Region of northeast Uganda.

A new phase of the project, “KRSU 2,” began in November 2019 and will run until October 2024. It focuses on translating evidence into practice and fostering collaborative learning to strengthen policy environments and program impacts. KRSU investigates emerging trends, best practices, and promising strategies, and identifies gaps, challenges, and opportunities to improve pastoralist systems and livelihoods in northeast Uganda.
