NEWS

Hear International (HI) in partnership with Infectious Disease Institute (IDI) with financial support from Center for Disease Control (CDC) is delivering life supporting Anti-retroviral drugs to People Living with HIV/AIDS during the lockdown period due to COVID-19 Pandemic in Arua and Madi-Okollo districts.

Hear International (HI) is disseminating its Child Safeguarding Policy to the beneficiary communities and other key stakeholders like schools, churches, Lower Local Governments among others. HI recognizes that abuse of power has led, and continues to lead, to many forms of exploitation and abuse. The nature of our work creates a power differential between those employed by or working with HI and programme participants. We acknowledge that the potential exists for those who work with programme participants to abuse their position of power.



EVENTS

Hear International (HI) is holding its 16th Annual General Meeting on 29th October, 2020. It is expected to be attended by all subscribing members of the organization. Key issues to propel the growth and development of the organization and the beneficiary communities will be discussed during the meeting.

 

Natural Resources Management

Expansion of Agricultural land and a variety of human activities have led to deforestation and Environmental degradation in many parts of Uganda as well as world over. If this continues, the potential contribution of Biodiversity to economic development and ecological stability will not be realized.

Developing new Natural Resource Management techniques to address such devastating Environmental degradation is important for our rapidly growing world. Field technicians, community leaders and others need appropriate training aids in Sustainable Land management for economic development that does not cause environmental degradation. Increased rates of deforestation, unsustainable agricultural land use, and severe soil degradation are creating wide spread poverty and environmental degradation in Uganda. The resulting human tragedy must be a cause for real concern because it affects all of us in so many ways.

Hear International (HI) has learned that tree planting and integrated approach to Natural Resource Management can be a lonely occupation, but it is important work at a time when Natural Resources are under threat. By integrating farming, people and trees in the same space, we achieve improved soil quality, higher crop yields and improved standards of living. We believe that people must know the value of tree planting and to be specific agroforestry and its benefits to them if they are to with stand pressure from developers or others who wish to strip trees from an area. Hear International (HI), will focus on:

i) Critical Natural capital: This comprises of natural assets essential to life that cannot be replaced or substituted by man-made capital e.g. Global climate, Biodiversity, Ozone layer etc.
ii) Other Natural Capital: These include renewable natural resources and some finite mineral resources that can be wholly or partly replished or substituted by man-made capital e.g. vegetation, air, soil etc.
However, Hear International’s Natural Resource Governance Program aims to address issues of Ecological and Environmental degradation as well as focusing on the promotion of transparency and accountability in the Management of Natural Resources in Uganda.
