Environmental Defenders works to protect environmental resources and human rights in the Lake Albert region of Uganda, which is threatened by oil and gas exploration, illegal logging, and large-scale agribusiness. Our partnership with Environmental Defenders will revive native savanna and grassland ecosystems on two sites, which, once restored, will absorb an estimated 30,033 metric tonnes of CO2 over 25 years. In order to scale this effort, we’ve provided financing, a modular seed bank, and operational support in building a nursery.
The team focuses on creating sustainable livelihoods for communities and preserving Indigenous knowledge of local medicinal plants. They also provide farmers with seedlings for fruit trees, including avocado, grapefruit, and guava.
