The conservation project being implemented by MCDO at Mgahinga Nursery and Primary School in Kisoro started from September 2017 and ends February 2018. The project is being supported by Daktari Andorra, the Association for improving the health and welfare of African livestock. The project focuses on the integration of conservation education in preserving both the environment and wildlife. The project encompasses all possible strategies on community to promote environmental sustainability and resiliency to climate change through engaging community members and school children in tree planting, proper sanitation and hygiene.
Through the CEEP project, children and community members have been introduced to environmental conservation strategies by engaging in the following activities:
MCDO is among the selected Civil Society organizations who attended the Post COP 23 feedback Workshop and Roadmap in Kampala, Uganda. The workshop intended to discuss the results from twenty third Conference of Parties (COP23) that took place in Bonn Germany (6th -17th November). The workshop took place on 5th-6th December 2017 at Silver Springs Hotel in Bugolobi-Kampala.
As a follow up action, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in collaboration with the Climate Change Department-Ministry of Water and Environment (CCD/MWE), ACODE, EMLI Bwaise Facility, Climate Action Network-Uganda (CAN-U) & ENR CSO Network convened the Post COP23 feedback workshop.
The workshop intended to bring together all stakeholders to discuss and reflect on the outcomes of the COP23 in the context of Uganda's needs and aspirations. Various stakeholders, including commissioners, various CSOs and members of parliament in-charge of climate change were involved to create awareness on the ongoing strategies towards climate change concerns.
A paper detailing key actions to be addressed by government and other stakeholders was generated. The paper was submitted to the Climate Change Department in the Ministry of Water and Environment, which informed the Government position for COP 23 discussions in Bonn, Germany.
