Uganda, through the Ministry of Water and Environment, is developing a national strategy for addressing deforestation and forest degradation in Uganda (The National REDD Strategy). REDD+ which stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation is a global incentive mechanism for financial flows to reward countries for improved management of its forest resources, and could thus ultimately contribute to the country’s sustainable development.
