ALU School of Wildlife Conservation, in partnership with WWF, is working on a detailed case study of the wildlife economy in Uganda. The research is funded by the CONNECT project (see below) and is supported by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). SOWC is working closely with the WWF Uganda office, as well as relevant stakeholders in Uganda.
Regular meetings are held with WWF Regional office, WWF Uganda, and UWA.
An inception meeting, with all relevant wildlife economy stakeholders in Uganda, was held on the 19th May to get inputs on the contents of the case study and ensure that all areas are well covered with the most up-to-date data.
SOWC is preparing the case study for review by Uganda stakeholders and to present in a stakeholder workshop, with the final case study and policy brief due in September 2021.
