Project information

In Uganda many people poach because of human-wildlife conflict or lack of income earning opportunities. The Uganda Wildlife Authority has a community programme to address such problems, but it is hampered by limited capacity and support. At Murchison Falls National Park IIED and partners are piloting an approach that aims to increase community engagement in tackling wildlife crime by implementing park-level action plans.
