Uganda NDP-lII and Climate change

Climate change has direct negative impact on household incomes as it does to the mass economy, setting a great risk to human lives through loss of livelihoods, increasing human population with its associated demands have dealt drastic blow to the environment, through reduction of forest cover and human encroachment of wetlands.

The third Uganda national development plan(NDP) 2020/2021-2024/2025, highlights, as a challenge to development, the severe reduction in the forest cover and wetland encroachment by human settlement, NDP-III has placed a call upon government to innovate ways to address the status quo.

Communities must appreciate the facts of climate change, they should be positioned as frontliners in the charge against climate change, through adapting to eco-friendly lives styles.

The legal framework guarding the environment needs to be retooled in a manner that can quickly reverse the excessive human pressure on environment thus mitigating climate change.

In a letter dated 30/April/2020, Ministery of environment wrote to all local governments and line heads of departments, communicating a fresh Presidential directive on eviction of encroachment in Forests, Wetlands and shores/banks of water bodies.

This call by government (of Uganda) to effect immediate eviction of encroachment in wetlands, Forest, banks of water bodies will go well ahead in mitigating the adverse effects of environmental degradation hence climate change by contributing to reducing global carbon footprint, let alone preserving and conservation of endegered flora and fauna.

We believe there is no better time to act on this than now, we support this move and urged all the cascading authorities copied and addressed in this letter to oblige and act to operationalise this directives to mitigate an impeding human disaster on whose account rampant flooding, drought, wildfires, extinction of plants, animals, birds and insects e.t.c have hitherto and in time to come shall be rampant.

It's on this ground, that we urge all like-minded organisations, groups and individuals to give this directive a chance to allow mother nature to continue pricelessly serving humanity.
