Challenge

Uganda has the world's third-highest birth rate, with 47.8 births per 1,000 people. Such exponential population growth puts the country's population in dire need for multiplicity of resources. The country continues to rely on woody biomass for its domestic fuel consumption. Over 1.5 million South Sudanese refugees are currently settled in the natural wood land, a home to wildlife, worst still, majority of these products derive from natural forests that are in protected areas, trees are cut

Solution

The project will create safe zones with the help of land lords who originally used the area for hunting for game meat annually during dry season. And engage operating partners to act Engaging the public and creation of zonal club and drama points within the settlement and integrating these animals with the communities and refugee population. And engage the relevant government authorities and Uganda Wildlife Authority to take up measures to rescue the wild animals and conserve the environment.

Long-Term Impact

The area has no any income generating activities because of lack of promotion of tourism potentials and initiative in the area. The project will reignite the conservation methods of different species of Fiona and Flora, and take stock of existing wild animals with the help of experts, government and communities and compensate the land owners where creation of zoo zonal points to rescue animals before transfer to another location
