Pader is a district in northern Uganda with a population of 325,885 (2002 census). It is a new district, having been carved out of the counties of Aruu and Agago formerly in Kitgum District in December 2001. Most of the population is currently displaced by the insurgency of the Lord's Resistance Army. The seat of district government, Pader Town, is located in the center of the district. The district is bordered by Kitgum to the north, Kotido to the east, Lira to the south, Apac to the southwest and Gulu to the west. Along with Gulu and Kitgum, Pader composes Acholiland, considered to be the historical homeland of the Acholi ethnic group, though other ethnic groups also live in the district.
