Environmental Education Project (ECO-PESA)

Summary Environmental issues and controlling, mitigating them is becoming evermore important in the Zombo region in Uganda (more specifically the sub-counties Paidha and Atyak). Extensive, destructive usage of the soil and other natural resources, together with, among others, poor waste management cause more severe droughts, combined with the increase of spreading pests and diseases. To raise awareness and reduce these negative impacts, the project “Eco Pesa” (Swahili for “Eco Money”) focusses therefore on environmental education and income generation through practical environmental conservation.
