Making elephants matter

Uganda’s protected area authorities were deeply committed to conservation, but needed extra help in getting communities to care

Uganda is a country both marked by natural beauty and still scarred by civil war. One needn’t travel far to see evidence of both, particularly in the northern stretches of the country. Palm trees dot stretches of wideopen grassland, while people who decades ago fled the terror of the Lord’s Resistance Army now battle to keep elephants off their farmland.

Chilies may be an unlikely way to promote biodiversity conservation, but under the USAID/Uganda Biodiversity Programme, AWF and Uganda Wildlife Authority have used it to raise community incomes and minimise human-elephant conflict.
