The eastern highlands of Uganda are prone to landslides, due to geological formations and steep slopes. Severe deforestation and poor farming practices exacerbate soil and water degradation in this area, ultimately leading to poverty. Several partners have, for long, promoted land management practices but adoption levels remain low. This is potentially attributed to the plot-level non-participatory approaches used. Also, the limited misunderstanding that sustainable watersheds can be achieved simply by enforcing regulations, limits realization of land management plans.
