As we close 2007, UCSD would like to highlight 2 major issues in 2007 that preoccupied public debate (and action) for sustainable development in Uganda and beyond: - The Mabira Campaign that sucked in, and united Ugandans, concerned citizens and partners around the world as a learning point and an experience will be kept as a moment in Uganda's history. The controversial proposal, which would have turned over 17,500 acre Mabira forest to the Indian-owned Mehta Group, had caused alarm in environmental circles and stirred up racial tensions.

UCSD’s Uganda Sustainability Bulletin (May/June ’07) on the Prosperity for All Programme UCSD’s May/ June bulletin is now available with focus on Uganda Government’s Plan to achieve Prosperity for All (Bonna Baggagawale scheme – BB for short) whose implementation and planned operation remains hazy. Moreover, women, youth and other vulnerable groups still lack basic needs that can anchor them well to prosper from it, hence may have limited confidence to be part of the Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies(SACCOs) which are prerequisite to accessing BB funds.
