Simon and Eng Twinomuhanji Maxmo, the team Leader at the Kyoga Water Management Zone under the Ministry of Water and Environment discussed in detail the status of the catchment restoration work and drew strategies to ensure efficient delivery that will benefit nature and people.
The Country Director also interacted with the communities that will be at the forefront of the restoration work and commended the fact that Women made up almost 60% of members in the different community groups.
“To engage in nature sustainability, we must empower women. As WWF, we are going to ensure that women are at the forefront of the Awojja Catchment restoration work”, he said.
Simon added that the beauty of nature is that even if we choose to do nothing and just put our destructive hands off, it will steadily regenerate.
