Leaders Cry Out to Government Over Deforestation


Leaders in Hoima district have expressed concern over the high rate of forest depletion in Bunyoro sub-region. They are concerned that despite efforts to reduce deforestation the results are slow to come leading to fears that the region’s forest cover will fully disappear with the expected exploitation of the oil resource. In our Environmental focus this week, we look at the changes in the region’s forest cover and what Hoima is doing to ensure environment sustainability.
