More effective natural resource management: using democratically elected, decentralized government structures in Uganda

Export citation

As forest and plantation reserves decline, the demand for tree products and services steadily increases in the densely populated south-western highlands of Uganda. Farmers are willing to grow trees on their farms but, as is typical in the highlands of Central Africa, on a small farm of less than i ha the farmer cannot set aside an area specifically for trees. Integrating trees into the farming system can provide important benefits to the fanner and the environment.
