Welcome to Nature and Livelihoods

Saving Nature . Supporting Livelihoods

Nature and Livelihoods is a Ugandan NGO. A livelihoods initiative for nature conservation on private lands and protected areas, it is a forum for professionals in fields of nature conservation, forestry, agriculture, livestock production, fisheries, nutritional health, pharmacology, and other nature-related livelihood professions to work collaboratively for nature-sensitive livelihoods improvement in rural lands. Considering that actions of people in urban areas can significantly impact ecosystems and livelihoods of people in rural settings, we are also interested in development of eco-friendly urban areas.

The NGO’s activities are geared towards improving land use efficiency, promoting sustainable use of indigenous biological resources, and protecting sensitive habitats relied upon by threatened species or providing critical ecosystem services.

We seek to address livelihood needs of mainly rural people by providing knowledge and incentives that have positive outcomes for biodiversity.

Our Vision

We envision a productive, protected area-friendly rural landscape rich in biodiversity, with good representations of indigenous plant and animal life, where nature’s values are well understood and appreciated, and where people consciously sustain nature for their livelihood.

Our Mission

Our mission is to facilitate coexistence of humans and indigenous flora and fauna on settled [private] lands and to save biodiversity in protected areas using livelihoods approaches that integrate livelihoods improvement with nature conservation.

Our Rationale

Our work is premised upon the understanding that whereas indigenous species and habitats are critical for the delivery of nature’s ecosystem services, biodiversity loss and land degradation continue unabated. As in many parts of the tropics, protected areas in Uganda do not adequately meet the scale of the challenge.
