Borderland Policy Briefing Series | Informal Cross-Border Trade along the DRC-Uganda Border

Feb 25, 2021

The Informal Cross-Border Trade along the Uganda- DRC border analysis and research brief was commissioned and produced by the UNDP African Borderlands Centre.

 Informal Cross-Border Trade (ICBT) plays a critical role for Uganda and the DRC. It acts as (i) an essential source of livelihoods for traders and their families on both sides of the border; (ii) a crucial source of foreign exchange, with knock-on effects on employment creation and income; and (iii) an important source of food security and the supply of other products in the border region, by linking up various markets across the border.
