Guidance note on opportunities to influence the amendment of the Uganda Wildlife Act (2000)
In November 2014, the Government of Uganda is in the process of amending the Wildlife Act, 2000.The revision process provides an opportunity for the Uganda Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (U-PCLG) to raise issues that are important to the group, regarding legislation on wildlife conservation and communities’ livelihoods. Of particular importance are measures to minimise human-wildlife conflict and to improve and increase revenue and benefit sharing with local communities.
This publication is an output of the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) - Briefing Paper
The Poverty and Conservation Learning Group is an international network of more than 100 conservation and development organisations that promotes learning on the linkages between biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction, in order to improve policy and practice. Individuals with an interest in poverty-conservation issues are also welcome to join the group to take advantage of the resources we offer, and to contribute to our work.
