Fairer, better. A guide to improving Integrated Conservation and Development in Uganda

Julia Baker

Toolkit, 60 pages

This guide aims to support Uganda’s leading work on Integrated Conservation and Development (ICD) by turning research findings from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park into practical advice. It illustrates the complexities of poverty and the range of principles that define fair conservation; and provides a series of guidance sheets that aim to help practitioners explore links between poverty and conservation pressures, target specific community groups, and design fairer ICD interventions.

If you are involved with the ICD approach to protected area management in Uganda, this guide is for you. It will also help a wider readership better understand how fairness can make protected areas more effective and sustainable.

This publication is an output of the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) - Toolkit

Project information

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.
