Engage with communities along the Rutoha River, which flows through the Bugoma Forest – important habitat for chimpanzees – into Lake Albert in Uganda. Enter into contractual relationships with farmers to encourage better riparian corridor management, with the ultimate goal being to foster a buyer-seller relationship between upstream communities and downstream utilities and the private sector.

Strategic Direction: 3 Initiate and support sustainable financing and related actions for the conservation of priority KBAs and corridors.
