An innovative national network of seed collectors will be created, and four high diversity nurseries will be established close to high opportunity areas for forest restoration identified in the Restoration Opportunities Assessment for Uganda. The use of native species for ecological restoration will be promoted by government and NGO project partners to create a strong, long term market for indigenous species. Supply and demand for genetically and species diverse planting material is increased through nurseries and seed collecting networks that employ >100 people, for biodiverse Forest Landscape Restoration in Uganda.
