Enhancing equity through the establishment of community based monitoring
Three parishes bordering Bwindi Impenetrable National Park were selected for community based monitoring of the implementation of Uganda’s 2012 revenue sharing guidelines for protected areas. Results reveal that the majority of the implementers and intended beneficiaries of the guidelines do not fully understand the new guidelines, and this creates disparities in the implementation of the policy.

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.
