Building Capacity for Conservation through Poverty Alleviation in Uganda: Inception Workshop Report
An Inception Workshop Report from a meeting held from the 12th to the 14th July 2012 to introduce the project “Research to Policy: Building Capacity through Poverty Alleviation” and gain input to the project design from a wide range of participants. The workshop was intended to design a research, capacity building and advocacy agenda for improving the effectiveness of integrated conservation and development policy in Uganda, identify existing information sources and prevailing research and knowledge gaps. The workshop was comprised of two parts: part one (on the first day) focused on the project launch and provided an introduction to the project, the project team, objectives, overall plans and anticipated outputs. Part two (on the second and third days) focused on research and capacity building plans for the project.

Despite interventions aimed at improving the livelihoods of communities in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in Uganda, the illegal use of the park's resources continued. This IIED project aimed to better understand who is carrying out the unauthorised use of resources and why, so that interventions can be more effective in the future.
