The goal of the USAID/Uganda Biodiversity for Resilience activity is to assist communities, the GOU and the private sector to conserve and manage biodiversity in target ecosystems for lasting environmental and economic sustainability and increased community and household resilience.

The activity will support community wildlife conservancies and protected area management while promoting market-based solutions, including nature-based tourism and other conservation enterprises, to improve stewardship of the natural resources necessary to sustain Uganda’s economic development. Revenues from biodiversity are a significant potential source of income and employment for local communities.
