A Country Environmental Analysis (CEA)
is a World Bank analytical tool used to integrate
environmental issues into development assistance strategies,
programs, and projects. To that end, the CEA synthesizes
environmental issues, highlights the environmental and
economic implications of development policies, and evaluates
the country's environmental management capacity. It is
composed of three analytical building blocks: the
identification of environment-development priority issues, a
general analysis of environmental institutions and
governance, and detailed analyses of the priority issues or
sectors identified in the first analytical building block.
It then examines the findings of this diagnostic process in
light of the engagement of the Bank and other development
partners (DPs) in the country's environment and natural
resources (ENR) sectors. At this stage, potential Bank ENR
interventions can be identified. This CEA for Uganda adheres
to the CEA analytical framework so described. Section I
begins by setting the general economic and environment
context in Uganda. It then looks more closely at the
economic value of Uganda's natural resources, in terms
of both stock (asset) values, and flow (income) values.
Section two is dedicated to an analysis of environmental
management institutions and environmental governance.
Environmental management in Uganda is decentralized,
consequently much of the analysis focuses on the
functionality of local institutions. Section three is
composed of the three focus natural resource sectors:
forestry, wetlands, and fisheries. Basic data and
information for each of the sectors were obtained from the
respective responsible ministries and agencies. In the case
of forestry and wetlands, recent and ongoing work provided
additional insights into management issues. Finally, section
four is about Uganda moving forward to improve ENR
governance. It summarizes the challenges and constraints to
environmental management and governance that were identified
in section three, and proposes actions to start improving governance.
