MUSEVENI: Development, democracy key to environment

MUSEVENI: Development, democracy key to environment

Kampala, Uganda| PPU |  President Yoweri Museveni has said continued underdevelopment and lack of democracy are some of the challenges facing wildlife conservation in Africa.


The President was speaking on Wednesday at a press briefing held at Entebbe State House Entebbe to launch the Uganda Giant’s Conservation and Tourism Investment Forum. He said for countries to ensure conservation of the environment, there is need to lessen the pressure on national parks by investing more in industries and services.


“If you are to support conservation sustainably, you must help backward countries become modern because this will lessen people putting pressure on national parks,” he said.


The President said having a big population of people in agriculture is a characteristic of backward societies. He noted that developed countries, such as the United States, which is 3 million square miles and a population of over 300 million, has only 2% of that population in agriculture while the rest are in industry and services. He, therefore, stressed the need for organic metamorphosis of societies from peasantry.
