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.
