Uganda Wetlands Atlas - Volume II
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Development Programme

Wetlands underpin the livelihoods of people and their integrity is fundamental to national development. The Uganda Wetlands Atlas, Volume II presents a comprehensive overview of the state and pressures on the wetlands in various parts of the country. Satellite and other visual presentations provide a compelling evidence of the changes taking place in the wetlands as a result of human activities. The Atlas identifies key hotspots where wetland degradation is proceeding at such a rapid pace that it now threatens to undermine the security and social fabric of communities. The Atlas sets the context by providing an introductory overview of wetlands management in the country, as well as the institutional, policy and legal framework. The visual analysis is then clustered in seven different wetland systems and basins. The seven wetland systems are; Lake Victoria Basin, Lake Kyoga Basin, Lake Albert Basin, Lake Edward Basin, Albert Nile Basin, Achwa, and Victoria Nile. The Atlas also proposes a series of options to remedy the current degradation and ensure a sustainable use of the country’s wetlands. It is envisaged that this publication will serve as an important reference tool for policy and decision makers, civil society, educators, students, and the general public.

Uganda Wetlands Atlas - Volume I
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Development Programme

This publication has been driven by the need to address the rising concerns about the impact of human activities on wetlands in Uganda, particularly those around the Kampala metropolitan area. This visual portrayal is clustered into five major themes: an introductory overview of wetlands management, institutional, policy and legal framework for general awareness of issues in the wetlands of Uganda and the Kampala metropolitan area; a brief overview of major wetland systems in the study area comprised of Kampala City, Mukono and Wakiso districts; a general description of the drivers of wetland changes, with detailed analysis for selected hotspots in Kampala, Wakiso and Mukono; wetland pressures, impacts, constraints and opportunities; and strategies for ensuring the wise use of these vital but fragile ecosystems. With up-to-date maps, recent and historical satellite images, ground photographs, data tables, graphs and compelling storylines, the Wetlands Atlas provides a vivid depiction of the state of Uganda’s major urban and peri-urban wetlands. It is envisaged that this Atlas will serve as an important reference tool for policy makers, legislators, corporate bodies, environmentalists, educators, students and the general public.
