National State of Environment Reports:

NATIONAL STATE OF ENVIRONMENT REPORT FOR UGANDA 2009/2010
The State of the Environment 2010 with the theme, “environment sustainability and health” is an integrated assessment of the state and trends of key environmental resources including land, fresh water and aquatic resources, biodiversity and energy resources among others. The report takes a multi-pronged approach in assessing utilization and vulnerability of all environmental resources in the country, Through an in depth research and use of scenarios, the report clearly highlights the effects of environmental degradation at both local and national level. The country faces severe environmental problems including soil erosion and declining soil fertility, deforestation, pollution of land, water and air resources, loss of biodiversity and over-harvesting of forests, fisheries and water resources. This continued liquidation of the country’s natural capital undermines long-term economic progress and will aggravate poverty. To spur the contribution of environmental resources to national economic development therefore, it will be necessary to improve environmental governance with specific focus on information provision, compliance and enforcement as well as the participation of all stakeholders.

NATIONAL STATE OF ENVIRONMENT REPORT FOR UGANDA 2007/2008
This year 2008, Uganda like any country in the world is facing many challenges resulting from the global financial crisis, commonly referred to as the “credit crunch”. The interconnection of our economies and the lack of liquidity on the world market has resulted in massive job losses and the closure of some companies, challenging our commitment to climate change and environment. The year 2008 saw oil prices reach a record high of about US$150 per barrel that induced the need to reduce on the dependence on fossil fuel consumption and explore cleaner technologies that promote sustainability. However, the recent drop in the world oil prices may reverse the gains that have been achieved in exploring the feasibility of using alternative fuels from the conventional fossil fuels.
