Greening Uganda’s 2016 General Elections Key Issues for Political Parties and Political Leaders to Address in their Manifestoes
MetadataShow full item record
In February and March 2016, Uganda will hold its general elections where eligible citizens will elect their next set of leaders including the President, Members of Parliament, LC Chairpersons and councillors at various levels. The elected leaders will serve for a term of five years. The 2016 Uganda general elections are taking place at a time when the Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) Sector is facing enormous challenges that threaten to substantially reduce their contribution to national growth, development, poverty reduction and peoples’ welfare. It is therefore important that political parties and other actors vying for power in the 2016 general elections prioritize and effectively address ENR issues in their manifestoes.
