The National Association of Professional Environmentalists (NAPE) is an action organization committed to sustainable solutions to Uganda,s most challenging environmental and economic growth problems. We monitor government actions, conduct research, provide educational materials, develop science-based strategies, organize affected communities, make common cause with other civil society organisations and international organizations, and engage government officials at all levels.

It is an ambitious undertaking, but as lifelong Ugandans we cannot ignore what is happening to our precious homeland. While we stand ready to work with anyone committed to the public interest, we also will not allow powerful political or special interests to intimidate or silence us. We have done so since our founding in 1997.

We choose our actions carefully to use our skills and resources most effectively, addressing our most urgent challenges first, and expand our impact by involving like-minded organizations and individuals, and communities in need.

Digging deep: The impact of Uganda’s land rush on women’s rights

Reports & Research
Février, 2018

Land – its access, control and ownership – lies at the heart of power relationships within Uganda. The struggle for land is deeply intertwined with the struggle for women’s rights. Women’s access to and control over resources and economic decision making is fundamental to the achievement of their rights. Despite some progress, inequality between women and men in ownership and control of land remains stark. Women’s rights organisations (WROs) in Uganda have identified changing patterns of land use as a major problem affecting women across the country.

Advocacy on agriculture, REDD+, land security, and indigenous land rights

Environment program - Agriculture policies monitoring project - REDD+ policies monitoring project 2. Land and livelihood program - Land security project - Indigenous land rights project NGO Forum will be enabled to carry out advocacy at national level and policy influence in order to promote sustainable development through empowering network members and their target local communities to participate in policy dialogue, and monitoring policy monitoring. The two programs will strengthen capacity of network members and affected communities so that they can increase level of engagement with the government on a number of policies to ensure that the most marginalised groups including small scale farmers, and indigenous communities benefit from development.
