We all depend on nature.
Nature is not only a beautiful thing to behold or a restorative retreat for the weary soul, it is the quintessential life provider: supplying food that nourishes, water that replenishes and the raw energy that ignites so many aspects of our modern mostly urban world.
From our impact on our fast changing climate to our free flowing rivers, expansive life giving oceans to vast food supplying landscapes, WWF Uganda Country Office catalyses strategic initiatives where there is the greatest need to restore balance, reduce impact and protect our country’s vital resources and natural biodiversity.
By ensuring healthy functioning natural systems, and the species and communities that are an integral part of them, we can help restore and reinforce our planet’s natural defences.
To achieve our mission – our vital contribution as WWF is to work towards;
-Conserving the world's biological diversity
-Ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
-Promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption
WWF Uganda Country Office specifically delivers its conservation out comes through three thematic programs; Forestry & biodiversity, Energy & climate and Fresh water. This is done under three broad strategic objectives:
1. To conserve the integrity of Uganda's forest ecosystems with a balanced mix of forest policy, wildlife, expansion of forest estate, good governance and community livelihoods interventions.
2. To develop and promote access to cost effective and environmentally friendly energy solutions for domestic, insttutional and product energy needs of the country.
3. To promote the preservation of priority water catchments in Uganda in order to sustain water quantity, quality and ecosystem functions for sustainable livelihoods and production.
