In our Ecosystems Alliance Programme we aim to empower communities for sustainable Natural Resource Management in the Albertine Rift. The programme is implemented by 3 consortium organizations i.e. National Association of Professional Environmentalists (NAPE), Uganda Wildlife Society (UWS) and Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO). NAPE doubles as the Country Coordinating Institution. The Programme began in December 2011 and will run up to the close of June 2015.
