Dear Colleagues,

Our panelist for today has recently fallen ill, so while we don't have a paper to share, we would like to draw your attention to their presentation from last Monday's kickoff:

C. Nakalembe (2021). Insights from mapping two refugee settlements in Uganda. https://youtu.be/9aw6_caa4f8?t=3351

In this presentation, the author provides their insights into refugee climate resilience based on interviews, community mapping, and drone data collection at Oruchinga refugee settlement in Uganda, which was established in 1959. In examining relationships between refugees and agriculture, sand mining, soil quality, and health care access, the author brings to light the various refugee-environment relationships that cannot be seen in imagery alone.

Please take a look and share your thoughts here. Thanks,
Jamon
