Enhance biodiversity conservation in and around Murchison Falls Key Biodiversity Area (KBA) in Uganda in the face of increasing oil and gas exploration in the region by enabling 120 community leaders in the districts of Amuru and Nwoya to actively engage in environmental impact assessment (EIA) implementation and compliance. Help local communities and their leaders understand what the EIA process is and how it can be used to prevent or mitigate adverse environmental impacts of industrial developments at the KBA.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
