Kibale Forest Wild Coffee Project

Project Summary

This project will assist Uganda’s implementation of its national biodiversity strategy and action plan by helping maintain biodiversity in the landscape mosaics beyond the boundaries of protected areas of global importance. It will do so by regulating uncontrolled coffee harvesting, confining it to buffer zones and ensuring that all activities in these areas reflect best practices for sustainable management of tropical humid forest ecosystems. It will created incentives for all parties to adhere scrupulously to tight control of location, timing, technique and volume of extraction of coffee planting and harvesting. The project will also seek to make the whole system financially self-sustainable through a funding channel that gives villages an incentive to become partners of Kibale National Park for conserving the globally important biodiversity of Kibale Forest.
