|Overview : |
The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) developed a project titled ‘Building resilient communities, wetland ecosystems and associated catchments in Uganda”. The Project is jointly financed by the Ministry of Water and Environment, Green Climate Fund (GCF) and United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The Project aims to address and consider climate change issues when managing critical wetland areas. Project activities were developed to specifically respond to and take into account specific climate-related impacts and vulnerabilities of wetland ecosystems. The project is covers a total of 20 districts, 10 each in eastern and south-western Uganda.
Several barriers prevent Uganda from sustaining resilient wetland ecosystems and associated livelihoods, including: 1) limited technical knowledge on the agro-ecological and hydrological systems of the wetlands; 2) insufficient extension services for resilient agriculture and livelihoods, and 3) inadequate climate information and early warning systems.
