Oil Extraction and the Potential for Domestic Instability in Uganda

The exportation of oil offers tremendous opportunities for Uganda.  It also poses several risks to Uganda’s domestic security.  Drawing on field research in Uganda, as well as archival research, this paper identifies three potential sources of domestic instability stemming from oil exportation: increased urbanization, unpredictability in tax revenue collection, and the formation of rebel groups.  The paper concludes that government transparency is crucial in avoiding most of the pitfalls associated with oil extraction and makes several recommendations for improving transparency in Uganda.

Optimizing investments in national scale forest landscape restoration in Uganda to maximize multiple benefits

Forest loss and degradation globally has resulted in declines in multiple ecosystem services and reduced habitat for biodiversity.  Forest landscape restoration offers an opportunity to mitigate these losses, conserve biodiversity, and improve human well-being.  As part of the Bonn Challenge, a global effort to restore 350 million hectares of deforested and degraded land by 2030, over 30 countries have recently made commitments to national forest landscape restoration.

Private Investment in Plantation Forestry  A Review of Lessons from Uganda Sawlog Production Grant Scheme

Promotion of private investment has been a challenge in the forestry sector of most African countries due to broad range of issues such as land tenure, low availability of financial capital, long gestation period, to mention but a few.  This paper is focused on review of lessons from implementation of Sawlog Production Grant Scheme(SPGS) in promoting private investment in the development of commercial forestry in Uganda. The aim of the paper is to present lessons and experience that are crucial for commercial forestry development in Africa especially for those countries with low private investment in plantation forestry.  The paper shows that provision of incentives and technical support offers an opportunity for risk management and stimulation of private investment in development of commercial forestry in Uganda.  This offers a strategy that can be replicated in other African countries in stimulating a viable private sector propelled forestry business.

Progress of Uganda’s Forest Investment Plan Formulation

The forest sector is one of the national development priorities as reflected in Uganda’s development policy. Uganda’s Vision 2040 recognizes the declining forestry resources and targets to restore forest cover to 24% of Uganda’s land area by 2040, while the second National Development Plan (NDPII) (2016-2020) targets to restore forest cover to 18% by 2020, reduce pressure on forest cover, increase plantation forestry and productivity, promote forest based industries, trade and incomes, and capacitate institutions responsible for the sector. FIP will contribute towards these development priorities stated in NDPII.

Over the past twenty years, Uganda’s population density has been increasing rapidly, placing significant pressure on the use of land.  Uganda now has a population density of 194 persons per square kilometer of arable land, compared to 80 in Kenya and 116 in Ghana.  At present, the majority of Uganda’s population still lives in rural areas, where the main source of livelihood is agriculture.  However, the proportion of the population living in urban areas has increased significantly and will continue to increase into the future, with urban centers being the main driver of economic growth and transformation into higher value added activities.  The highest rates of growth in population density are recorded in Uganda’s central region.

Should the Government Expropriate Private Land for Investors in Uganda

In 2001, the Ugandan Government floated a proposal to amend the Constitution to enable the Government to acquire any land compulsorily required for economic investment. The Constitutional Review Commission, 2003, rejected this proposal. Subsequently, the Government withdrew the proposal when it became clear that Parliament was unlikely to support it. This paper revisits the Government’s proposal. It explores a possible argument that the Constitution already makes provision for that power. Regardless, the paper seeks to support the Government’s proposal.

Socio Economic Effects of Chinese Agricultural Investments on the Environment and Local Livelihoods in Uganda

The nature and significance of China's engagements with African agriculture continues to be hotly debated in the media, academia and policy circles around the world.  Although China has been engaged in Uganda’s agriculture for morethan 40 years, the recent jostle for agricultural land by private Chinese investors is mystifying and justifies the need to conduct a scientific study to provide clear evidence before the issue gets bundled into the messy anecdotal media inquiry.

Status and trends in Chinese investments that impact forestland use in Uganda

Chinese investments in Uganda’s forestry sector began less than a decade ago. These investments are in tree growing and processing, mainly for export to countries such as China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan. Major trees grown include Hoop pine and Macadamia, while pine and eucalyptus trees are the major trees processed. Investors obtain tree seedlings mainly from the National Forestry Authority, private tree nurseries and through import from neighbouring countries such as Kenya.Chinese investments in Uganda’s forestry sector began less than a decade ago.

Ten Principles for Successful Public Private Partnerships

The use of public/private partnerships (PPPs), as this publication clearly illustrates, is a growing trend throughout the United States.  But this practice is far from novel or even new.

The use of PPPs to meet a wide variety of public needs dates back centuries in the United States.  One of the first examples was the Lancaster Turnpike, a tollroad built by the private sector with public sector oversight and rights-of-way.  It was opened in 1793, connecting Pennsylvania farmers with the Philadelphia market and drastically reducing the travel times.  The Erie Canal, completed in 1825, and the first Transcontinental Railroad, finished in 1869, are two other early examples of PPPs.

The Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) industry has been in existence in Uganda for six (6) years, the first and only Unit Trust Manager having started CIS operations in August 2004. In the last five (5) years the industry has grown from a Net Asset base of US$ 523,779 at the end of 2005 to US$ 1.97 million at the end of March 2010 a growth of 276%. Over the same period the CIS investment accounts has grown to 699 as at end of March 2010. However when compared to Ghana a market similar to Uganda, the CIS industry in Uganda lags way behind both in terms of net asset value and number of investors. In Ghana the CIS industry began operations in 2002 and within six (6) years the net asset value had grown to 123.61 million and the investor base to 128,067 investors which is way above what Uganda has been able to achieve over the same period.
