Projects under the IFPA-CD visited for supervision and checks

A team from the Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities, led by Ag. Commissioner Mr. George Owoyesigire, visited several districts including Kyenjojo, Kamwenge, Kibale, Kyegwega, Kazo, and the Katonga Wildlife Game Reserve, as well as the Toro-Semuliki region. The team was accompanied by officials from the Uganda Wildlife Authority, the National Forestry Authority, and the National Water and Sewage Corporation. They were there to supervise and check on the progress and implementation of various projects being carried out under the IFPA-CD World Bank funded projects.

During their visit, the team inspected projects such as woodland and nursery bed establishment, training and capacity building in energy-saving technologies, rainwater harvesting, beekeeping, and invasive species control. They also visited households that had benefited from the projects, receiving water tanks, energy-saving cooking stoves, bee hives, trenches along the Kibale National Park to control elephants from attacking their gardens, and more. The beneficiaries expressed their joy and gratitude, explaining the benefits they had received.

The team also visited forest reserves in Itwara, Kibego, Muhangi, and Rwensambya, where restoration and enrichment planting is being implemented. Several forest boundaries were opened with concrete pillars and proper signage. Communities in the area also benefited from IFPA-CD trainings and the provision of energy-saving cooking stoves, bee hives, nursery beds, and tanks for water harvesting.
