Deforestation is a main cause of environmental degradation in Uganda. Over 26% of forest and woodland cover was lost in 15 years, between 1990 and 2005. These losses continue, as people have no affordable alternative to wood fuel for cooking. Tree and bamboo planting is a high priority for our Ugandan colleagues. Nurseries to produce planting materials are being established in Kamuli and Ngora with involvement of many schools and communities in these projects. The 2019 project in Kamuli has a planting target of 40,000 trees and bamboo in its first year.
