Challenge

Kasese District in Western Uganda is re-currently hit by food deficit mainly because of natural disasters like floods, land slides, earthquakes that hit most of the areas of the District in May 2013, January 2014 and May 2020. Population pressure, erratic nature of rainfall, land shortage, backward environmental conservation and agricultural technology and so on continue dis-empowering communities from attaining the benefits of the environment hence leading to high occurrence of floods.

Solution

The project will train farmers to adopt sustainable land management interventions/ practices that reduce water catchment threats and risks and restore farm lands along the river Mubuku banks by planting indigenous tree species like low land bamboo for river bank stabilization and also train farmers on agro -forestry measures that combine Agricultural and Forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive and sustainable land use systems.

Long-Term Impact

The capacity building trainings in sustainable land management interventions components of the project will provident resident skills in understanding and interpreting environmental policies and laws among community structure.This shall harness environmental law enforcement and sustainable management of the water resources restored by the project thus improving the quality and quantity of water downstream the river to the industrial and domestic water users like power generating companies.
