Budongo-Bugoma Landscape Project

Goals:


Facilitate network formation among communities, private forest owners and local governments for collective development and implementation of a landscape forest management plan in order to reduce deforestation and degradation and market emission reductions.


How it will work:

  • The project will focus on the degraded tropical high forest and woodlands within the wildlife corridor (currently being mapped).
  • The Incubator will also further engage local government structures to build aspects of the landscape plan into local government development plans.
  • A feasibility study is being undertaken to evaluate the potential for REDD in the conversion of these small forest patches within the landscape.  
  • The Incubator will directly contribute to the National REDD Proposal Document to be prepared by April 2010.
  • The Budongo-Bugoma landscape project will demonstrate how REDD incentives can be used for sustainable forest management among private, community and government stakeholders.
