The gendered postconflict city: Possibilities for more livable urban transformations in Gulu, northern Uganda

Scholars acknowledge that postconflict urbanism is undertheorized and underdeveloped for practical governance or sustainable urban management, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, which has unfortunately experienced significant conflict in the post-independence period. We argue that postconflict redevelopment theory and practice under appreciates liminal spaces and the precarious existence of postconflict people, especially postconflict women. We examine the extant literature on Gulu, Uganda, to develop theory and urban management concepts around the notion...

Recovery patterns in community composition of fruitā€feeding butterflies following 26 years of active forest restoration

Restoration of forests is now considered an essential tool to combat climate change and the global biodiversity decline. However, our understanding of how animal communities recover after restoration interventions in tropical forests is limited. Here, we aim to reveal the recovery patterns of fruit-feeding butterfly communities across a large-scale rainforest restoration area in Kibale National Park, Uganda. Our study represents a chronosequence resampling of fruit-feeding butterfly communities across actively restored...
