Mabira Forest Ecosystem

The Mabira Forest Ecosystem is globally recognised for its importance in the conservation of biodiversity and protection of the watershed. Human and wildlife populations around the Lake Victoria basin derive their livelihoods from the Mabira Forest Ecosystem. It is therefore an area of high priority for the Ministry of Water and Environment in as far as livelihoods and ecosystem health are concerned. It is necessary for the National Forestry Authority.
