Selected Millenium Development Goals indicators at the District Level


Millenium Development Goals, Targets and Indicators (Status of Kitgum District and National)

Introduction

reached consensus on commonly agreeable targets to be achieved by 2015.

In an attempt to meet the requirement of monitoring progress towards the Goals, in early 2003, the
UN System in Uganda prepared the first report on Ugandas progress towards achieving the Goals.
The report indicated that while Uganda appears to be on track to achieving some of the Goals, it
faced a number of constraints to achieving others. The report also noted that the country has steadily
increased its data gathering capacity.

In order to enhance or promote public debate and at the same time influence the whole range of

while others are owned by Non -Government Organizations. The distribution is fair, but some of them
lack the basic equipment to offer reasonable services. Many rural units require rehabilitation and
equipping. Besides diseases, poor nutrition has contributed to worrying situation. Because of the
cross cutting nature of health issues, there is need for an integrated approach to health.

in the district. Such activities include blood screening and counselling, medical treatment, home care,
pastoral education, health education, AIDS research and orphan support.

The percentage of persons with access to safe water coverage has increased by about 3 percent in
2010 from 63 percent to current 67 percent compared to the national average of 65 percent (DWO
baseline report September 2012).
23

Kitgum District Statistical Abstract 2012/13

The average functionality of Boreholes is 68 percent in Kitgum district; this one varies from Sub
County compared to about 70 percent national standard. The functionality of boreholes is reduced
due to the poor Operation and Maintenance strategy adopted by communities.
Provision of safe improved water source has been interrupted by very poor underground water
potentials in some places in Kitgum district. This has reduced the safe water provision by about 5
percent.
The percentage sanitation coverage in kitgum district is at 58 percent which is below the national
coverage of about 82 percent.

CHAPTER 7 NATURAL RESOURCES


Introduction

The Department of Natural Resources comprises of the Natural Resources Office, the Lands and
Physical Planning Office as well as the Forestry, Environment & Wetlands Office. It is charged with
the responsibility of ensuring sustainable and productive utilisation of natural resources for poverty
reduction, enhanced economic growth and improved livelihoods. The major causes of the
deterioration in the quality and the quantity of the natural resource base is associated with human
activity. There is massive deforestation particularly on privately owned land where over 60percent of
the districts tree resources are. This is closely followed by wetland degradation as a result of
cultivation of crops. Other threats are soil erosion whose magnitude and impact has never been
quantified.

Kitgum District Statistical Abstract 2012/13

7.3.1

Natural and Planted Forests

The total area of land gazetted under forestry in Kitgum (Central Forest Reserves CFRs and Local
Forest Reserves LFRs), is about 30,740 Ha, making about 20 percent of the total land cover of the
district. While, forests on land held under the clan system and in the land outside protected Areas
(mostly woodlands), is about 16.5 percent. And over 60 percent is bush and grasslands.

Forestry resources provide a number of direct uses and indirect uses to both the local people within
the district as well as for the wider communities nationally and internationally. Forests in Kitgum
District are known for providing high quality timber, wood fuel and water sources. Studies have
indicated that the local people living around the forests have more than twelve forest resources that
they make use of for subsistence. Ogili, Rom and Nyangeya- Napore forests are also known for
biodiversity values and ecotourism values.

Kitgum district has one of the average diverse and rich habitats even outside protected areas. Within
the district, tropical woodland, tropical savannah, tropical evergreen forests, tropical semi-deciduous
forests, seasonal and permanent swamps are found. These vegetation types support a variety of
wildlife. Although no biodiversity inventories have been carried out outside protected areas, the
richness of biodiversity in Forest Reserves, Game Reserves and the waters of River Pager and
Aringa is a good indicator of the diversity within the district.
7.3.2

Types of Forests

The National Forestry and Tree Planting Act 2003 (NFTPA), defines forests under five main
categories:
(i) Central Forest Reserves, under the management of NFA;
(ii) Local Forest Reserves, under the management of LGs;
(iii) Private forests, under the management of private forest owners (PFOs);
(iv) Community forests, under the management of the body specified in the order declaring the
community forest; and
(v) Forests forming part of the wildlife conservation area, under the management of Uganda
Wildlife Authority (UWA)

Conclusion

The Uganda government development priorities are summarised as Growth, Employment and
Prosperity for all. Forestry has been identified as one of the key contributor to growth, employment
and prosperity for all. After validating important issues raised in the Forestry Sector Review Report of

30

Kitgum District Statistical Abstract 2012/13

2008 which was commissioned by FAO and reviewing of issues and opportunities in the forestry
sector in Northern Uganda by FAO, the following are the important problems and issues identified that
requires attention in the forestry:.
1. Areas around the IDP camps have been stripped off trees and woody vegetations cover
resulting in difficulties in accessing forest/woody products and loss of environment services
(e.g. silting of rivers/streams, contamination of water sources, loss of wildlife/biodiversity etc.)
2. Increasing rates of (deforestation) currently standing at 1.9% per year. In Kitgum, this was
exacerbated by concentrating people in IDP camps. In addition, the people have now
returned to their original homes and are clearing woodlands and forest for cultivation and
settlement.
3. Poor forest governance due to corruption, lack of government committeemen to SFM, delays
in gazetting forestry regulations and officially launching the DFS Hand book.This has led to
increasing rates of illegal activities and change of land use from forestry.
4. Encroachment in Local Forest reserves and Central Forest reserves.
5. Inadequate or poor linkange of sustainable forestry management to growth and development
in other sectors of the economy resulting into low prioritization and under budgeting of the
sector.
6. Limited programs (investment) for tree planting and management forest resources compared
with other sectors. This is because the cash flow in other investments is faster than those in
forest management. For example it takes over 12 years to start receiving cash from a timber
plantation.
7. Limited skills and knowledge of sustainable forest management (SFM) for the majority of
development partners resulting in poor quality of forestry products and services delivered.
8. Inadequate private sector investment in forest management because of long term investment
and poor cash-flow at the early and middle stages of Plantation investments.
9. Little income from multiple forest products from natural forests and woodland
10. Little research in forestry leading to difficulties in attracting investment into the sector.
The problems above lead to poor management of forests, and thus increasing rate of forest
degradation and deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation hinder the role of forests among
others in ameliorating climatic conditions, thus negatively affecting sustained crop production. For
example, the Uganda National Household Survey 2005/2006 (Agriculture Module) revealed that 43%
of all national crop plots suffered from damage, mainly due to rain shortage (19%), followed by crop
disease (10%) (Kazoora, 2007), conditions closely associated with degraded environment. This has
raised problem of food security and livelihoods of many Ugandans are at risk.
