European Union Injects Shs12b To Save Uganda’s Vanishing  Forest Cover

The European Union (EU) has earmarked €2.9m (over Shs12.5 billion) to boost two disaster risk management projects in the refugee host districts of Isingiro, Kyegegwa, Kamwenge, and Kikuube.

The two projects are; strengthening resilience through enhanced local disaster risk management capacities. And strengthening emergency preparedness and inclusive natural resources management in refugee-hosting districts.

The two European Union projects will be implemented separately by Oxfam Uganda and Care International respectively. It will take about 33 months and will benefit at least 839,750 people.

Speaking at the launch of the projects in Kampala on Thursday, the head of development cooperation at the EU delegation to Uganda Ms Caroline Adriaensen said that the aim of these projects is to improve the resilience of Ugandan community members in the four districts to the ever-changing climatic conditions and their adverse effects on food.
