Uganda Global Day of Action

Global day of action on POPs in Uganda.

As part of the Global Day of Action on POPs, NAPE and ENGO-LOG, in conjunction with the Social Sector Planning and Management, Masters Programme, in the Faculty of Social Sciences of Makerere University, organized a public lecture on June 27, 2005, under the theme "POPs Management in Uganda a challenge to Sustainable Development." The main objective of the public lecture was to create public awareness about POPs and their effects on human health and the environment. As part of the awareness campaign, education materials on POPs were developed and presented /disseminated, including a public lecture, information brochure, banner printing and paper presentation. The public lecture enlisted the support of a Member of Parliament, Hon. John Ken Lukyamuzi who has been instrumental in the struggle against POPs and the unsustainable use of chemicals in the country. Participation of the Member of Parliament created room for a partnership and opportunity for the POPs message from CSOs to reach the Parliament.
