Location: Nyundo Village, 6km from the Buhoma entrance to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
The residents of Nyundo were firsthand witnesses to climate change. They cultivated crops on the steep hillsides bordering Bwindi Impenetrable forest, but had noticed erosion, changing rain patterns and the disappearance of the forest´s characteristic mist. Ultimately, their crops began to fail. The Nyundo Community Conservation Project was developed in response to this. The community decided to protect the land and allow the forest to grow back, and now the trees, the rains and the mist have all returned to Nyundo.
