Forest Governance Learning Group - Uganda work plan 2008
Uganda is one of the countries participating in the international Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG). This consists of small, country-based groups of opinion-formers and decision-makers exchanging learning and developing ideas on forest governance – and linking with similar groups in several other African countries. The purpose of the work in Uganda is threefold: to (i) spread learning about workable approaches to good forest governance; (ii) make measurable progress in improving sustainable local returns to livelihoods from law enforcement, private sector responsibility and enhanced local ownership and access rights; and (iii) build long-term capacity to spread these improvements. The main direct target groups are forest policy decision makers; leaders in forest enterprise; and champions of local community rights. Activities involve participatory analysis, learning and training events, network building, supported uptake of governance tools, and taking direct opportunities for governance reform.
