Rwenzori Mountains Conservation and Environmental Management Project, Uganda - Phase II (2010-2012) Final Evaluation Report
The Rwenzori Mountains National Park (RMNP) in Uganda (990 km2) was established in 1991, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 and the RMNP’s high altitude wetlands (224 km2) were enlisted as a Ramsar site in 2009. The Park is managed by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). The Rwenzori Mountains Conservation and Environmental Management Project (RMCEMP) was designed to address multiple threats and gaps in park management identified in UWA’s General Management Plan for the RMNP. The purpose of the final evaluation was to assess and review the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of phase II of the RMCEMP to determine if the Project delivered its intended benefits and impacts and ultimately provided value for money. The evaluation also serves to guide the design of similar projects in the future and contribute to organizational learning and lessons to the WWF network and other stakeholders.
