Why we exist

Why we exist

We exist because Uganda is one of the African countries depicted as data poor with respect to key indicators on environment and ecosystem management. This mainly stems from laxity in making deliberate efforts to collect data and information and ensuring that it is consolidated under relevant environmental indicators in ways that make it accessible to future users. STEPUP is working through young people to improve the quality of environment data and its documentation and dissemination.
