P.O. Box 232


The "Integrated Pastoral Development Project (IPDP) Mbarara" aims at enabling 900 settler families to sustainably satisfy their basic needs from their own resources within 6 years. The Mbarara Local Government (MLG) and "Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ)" are in charge of project implementation from the Ugandan and German side respectively.

The ultimate objective for the implementation of watershed management measures during the 3 phases of the project, is to have settled communities with sufficient water for both production (livestock use) and domestic use. This objective was achieved using a gender sensitive, participatory extension concept.
