Protecting The Planet

Uganda depends heavily on environment and natural resources. Future sustainability in agriculture, food security and general livelihoods relies significantly on environmental conservation and sustainability. However, the country is subjected to environmental problems which put the economic, environmental and social development at risk. These include soil degradation, deforestation, drainage of wetlands, loss of biodiversity, pollution and unsanitary conditions. Many of these problems are associated with poor management of water resources, poor farming methods, demographic pressures leading to land scarcity, and lack of efficient energy sources; resulting into food insecurity arising from drought and floods, outbreak of diseases such as malaria, water borne diseases associated with floods and respiratory diseases associated with droughts, and heavy rainfalls which increase land degradation.

We believe that it’s our responsibility to help preserve the planet for the next generation of travelers and the communities we visit. We believe that it is essential to enhance the capacity of local communities to adapt to climate change and improve their resilience. With a focus on forests and prosperity, we work to improve livelihoods and justice for those living in and around forests, and ensure forests and biodiversity are managed sustainably in ways that help climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Our environmental Conservation work focuses on the links between biodiversity, conservation and local people’s livelihoods. This project undertakes to protect the land which was severely degraded or degrading due to soil degradation, deforestation, drainage of wetlands, loss of biodiversity, pollution and unsanitary conditions. It focuses on restoration of forest landscapes through tree planting, seed collection and propagation, agroforestry, and many other restoration methods which offers a way to recover some of the essential forest functions that have been lost through widespread deforestation and degradation.
