Project Summary:
Uganda’s endangered eastern chimpanzees live in forests fragmented by agriculture, exacerbated by extractives development. Smallholders lack food security due to marginal yields and high levels of crop raiding by wildlife. Reforesting and maintaining riverine corridors that bridge larger forest blocks is essential to human-wildlife co-existence. Equipping communities with training and inputs for reforestation, agroforestry system development and human-wildlife conflict mitigation, provision of tree seedlings (indigenous reforestation and agroforestry), and the establishment of conservation enterprise will help to secure this co-existence.
