Uganda: Sustainable Tourism

Category:

Encore Broadcast: November 23 at 9:30 pm

Prairie Public Original production “Uganda: Sustainable Tourism” tours the developing tourism industry in Uganda.

The television project documents a six-year pilot project by the University of Manitoba’s Natural Resources Institute. Dr. Michael Campbell helped three Ugandan communities in ecologically sensitive areas develop strategies to build their tourism industry while protecting the breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife travelers come to see.

“I was completely surprised at how diverse the landscapes of Uganda were, and how friendly and welcoming everyone we met at the program sites were, said Stenehjem. “They were so excited that travelers were finally coming to their villages and learning more about their beautiful country, and the country is so very, very beautiful.“

The documentary visits three diverse sites in Uganda to examine efforts undertaken by Ugandans to build services for tourists that sustain the environments people come to see: the high mountain forests outside Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, the volcanic savannahs of Queen Elizabeth National Park in the Nile Rift Valley, and the evergreen rainforests of Kibale Forest National Park.

Production funding is provided by the Natural Resources Institute at the University of Manitoba through a UPCD grant from Canadian International Development Agency and AUCC, and by the members of Prairie Public
