Mpa Mpa Nkuwe (Let’s Share)

Target audience: Frontline communities who make their home around Uganda’s national parks, in particular Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

The Issue: Uganda is a country rich in biodiversity, however human-wildlife conflict, resource dependency and population growth are placing huge pressure on its natural resources, including its national parks which are home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla.

In response to this, the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG), a learning network coordinated by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), established its first national group, the Uganda Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (U-PCLG) in 2011, to bring together Ugandan conservation and development practitioners to share their experiences and to work together to better inform policy and practice. The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Uganda coordinates U-PCLG. PCI Media Impact is collaborating with U-PCLG to strengthen communication deliverables, including three radio talk shows on equal revenue sharing between the protected park areas and communities, a theme song by the famous Ugandan musician Richard Kawesa, addressing U-PCLG priority biodiversity conservation issues, and design and distribution of a conservation-themed 2D comic strip to ‘turn up the volume’ on these critical issues.
