Greenwatch’s team together with a group of children including some of the plaintiffs in the case of Nissi Mbabazi Vs Attorney General and NEMA (Civil suit no: 283 of 2021) visited Mabira forest in Central Uganda, the third largest forest in Uganda.
The children were able to appreciate nature’s ecosystem in detail. They traversed the forest (first zone) both the degraded part and intact sections supervised by Haman (the forest guide). The children learnt about the importance of forests, their role in combating climate change and how they can be restored once degraded. This gave them an insight on how environmental degradation especially deforestation and plastic waste negatively impacts the forest ecosystem.
