Environmental Protection, Food Security and Economic Strengthening (EPFOSE) Project - Manafwa District Uganda Project Mid Term Evaluation
The Salvation Army Uganda (TSA UGA) is implementing a five-year Environmental Protection, Food security and nutrition and Economic strengthening project, funded by Norad through Digni and TSA Norway, in Manafwa district Uganda. The project contributes to protection of the environment and empowering the communities to be food secure and economically well in the six sub counties in Manafwa district. The long-term goal of this project is to lay the ground work for long term protection of the areas surrounding Mt Elgon National park and its ranges. The purpose of the project is to develop and test effective measures for the reduction of the root causes of biodiversity degradation; the elicit use of the protected resources by the subsistence population. This will be achieved through pilot activities to raise income in the sub-counties along the slopes of the mountain by supporting environmentally sound district planning. This will also further be achieved through the promotion of food secure community through the provision of inputs that support sustainable agriculture, nutrition and enhance livelihoods while adapting to climate change and conserving natural resources and environmental services.
