Natural High Forest
Rehabilitation Project on degraded land
 
Sustainable forest management to protect valuable ecosystems

Kibale National Park, Kabarole, Uganda*

The Kibale National Park (KNP) is located in the western part of Uganda. The project is implemented by the Uganda Wildlife Authority in cooperation with Face the Future.

Due to the regularly high precipitation, the complex landform, the undulating valleys as well as the impact of human activity (through burning lands, using larger areas as grazing lands for animals, producing charcoal) and poor land management, the area was subjected to a severe deterioration of vegetation and soil erosion.

The project actively contributes to climate protection, since the planted, fast growing, indigenous tress bind climate-harmful greenhouse gases from the atmosphere in their biomass and thus permanently remove them from the atmosphere.

The project aims at achieving many other socio-economic and ecological advantages in the project region. Climate protection, biodiversity preservation, local community development and soil erosion control, through the restoration of forest vegetation on degraded land areas.

Great goals, difficult implementation

According to WHO, 663 million people in Africa, Asia and South America have no access or only insufficient access to clean drinking water. Therefore, drinking water in plastic bottles is not only an alternative to unsafe water supply for many people, but the only way out.

Uganda is one of the centers where drinking water for the African region is bottled in PET-bottles. Indeed, this situation causes a great waste problem. However, these water bottles are imperative for many people to survive.

In 2012 already, Uganda has made an important decision regarding the climate protection: a law prohibiting plastic bags was passed. The judges decided that plastic bags „violate the rights of people to a clean and healthy environment”.

The Ugandan climate policy has set itself ambitious goals which are very difficult to implement due to various problems that are located at different levels. In 2007, the NAPA was adopted. The National Adaptation Programme of Action and different programs of action include strategies of adaptation to climate change.

Countries such as Uganda are among the most vulnerable to climate change without belonging to the main polluters. Uganda and all african countries are dependent on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the industrialized countries, the compensation for the financing of adaptation measures and transfer of technology in the country.
