This week, Enough Project partners The Resolve and Invisible Children released the LRA Crisis Tracker Midyear 2016 Security Brief. The brief analyzes the latest data on attacks, abductions, and whereabouts of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) gathered over the first six months of 2016. Providing up-to-date data on LRA activities and abuses gathered from diverse sources including hand-held radio reporting from affected communities and open-source news outlets, the crisis tracker is a crucial tool for efforts to address the LRA’s threats and improve security for LRA-affected civilian communities in the region.
