TThe Fifth Project Steering Committee Meeting of
the SPGS III Project was held on 8 August 2018 at
the Ministry of Water and Environment in Kampala.
Key among issues discussed was feedback from a Result
Oriented Monitoring (ROM) mission, conducted by the
European Union, to assess the Project’s performance.
The mission noted that the SPGS III Project is relevant to
Uganda’s national policies and development agenda and
responds to needs of various categories of beneficiaries
including communities, institutions, growers of all
categories as well as service providers such as nursery
operators. It further revealed that grantees exhibited high
plantation maintenance and establishment standards
for good forestry, although communities and institutions
needed more support to uphold similar standards.
