Project to Restore Over 700 km of Degraded Wetlands Starts

The Government of Uganda and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have kickstarted a $44.26 million project on building community resilience, wetlands ecosystems, and associated catchments in Uganda. The project, which is being implemented in 20 districts from South-Western and Eastern Uganda, is Uganda's first Green Climate Fund-financed initiative and is a response to the Presidential Initiative on Wetlands. The project intends to restore degraded wetlands, improve ecosystems, and strengthen climate information and early warning systems. The grant based project will target an estimated 4 million people who live in and around Uganda's wetlands and rely on them for food security.
