Collate biodiversity data from the Murchison National Park, Uganda, that will guide the exploration and development of the oil and gas activities in the Albertine Graben area. Contribute to piloting the existing environment monitoring plan developed by the Uganda National Environment Management Authority to generate baseline data to monitor impacts of oil and gas activities. Disseminate the lessons from the work through a poster to the Civil Society Coalition on Oil and Gas (CSCO) and Uganda – Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (UPCLG).

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