Margaret A. Rugadya

Program Officer

Margaret A. Rugadya works in the foundation's Nairobi office, where she has focused on natural assets and community rights issues. The goal of her grant making has been to advance and consolidate reforms in land and natural resources that will improve the material well-being of women and young people in Eastern Africa.

Margaret joined Ford in 2010 and brought to the foundation a wealth of experience and expertise through her work over more than a dozen years with communities, nongovernmental organizations, and government. She has conducted development policy analysis and action-oriented research on land and natural resources, and she has consulted for a range of institutions, including the government of Uganda, Norwegian Embassy, United States Agency for International Development, World Bank Uganda Country Office, World Conservation Society, and Rural Development Institute.

Previously, Margaret was executive director at Associates Research Uganda and a program officer with the Uganda Land Alliance.

Margaret holds a master's degree in sociology and a bachelor's degree in information science, both from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. She has also earned postgraduate diplomas in management, legislative drafting, and urban land management and settlement regularization. Margaret is completing her doctoral thesis for a PhD in public policy and policy analysis from Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
