Best Practices in Environmental Information Management in Africa: The Uganda Case Study

15 Feb 2009

Environmental management in Uganda was first accorded the attention it deserves with the creation of the Ministry of Environment Protection in 1986. Following this, Uganda realized the need to put in place systems and structures to ensure the management of environmental information.

The management of environment information involves a number of processes and outputs. These include the collection, organisation, analysis and communication of data, statistics and other qualitative material. The production of environmental information entails the collection and analysis of raw data and their interpretation into forms that can be used for decision making (NEMA 1996). Some of the outputs include assessments and studies and the production of state of the environment reports, environmental outlook reports, statistical compendia, data books, environmental atlases and policy statements by both public and private sector organizations.
