Manafwa Watershed Restoration

This project focuses on the Manafwa watershed in Eastern Uganda, which forms part of the Mount Elgon National Park, and is impacted by increasingly frequent floods, landslides, shrinking forest reserves, soil degradation and droughts.

The urgency to conserve and restore the watershed’s ecosystem services and establish resilient farming systems for sustainable local food production is huge. To tackle this challenge, mobilizing the local population is key: from farmers to policymakers.

We have worked with continue to work with Partners Uganda Wildlife Authority, Mt Elgon Tree Growers’ Association, National Forestry Authority and the District local government.
