Project Description

The project objective is to conserve globally significant biodiversity in Kibale National Park and in the agricultural landscape of Uganda by creating a system to use income from sale of Kibale Forest Wild Coffee to improve management of KNP It was also intended to provide an incentive to small arabica farmers sufficient to lead them to produce organic coffee in
biologically diverse agricultural ecosystems. The expected project outcomes anticipated from the Kibale Forest Wild Coffee (GEF Medium-Sized Project), were the removal of the present threat to biological diversity in both the core conservation zone, and the buffer zone, the establishment of an ecologically, sustainable management system, including that for a self-sustaining incentive for conservation of biological diversity in an agricultural landscape, and, the creation of a financial flow for sustaining management costs, to be invested in socioeconomic improvements for the community.
