Donors boost efforts to stop dwindling fish species

Donors move to boost government’s efforts to stop the dwindling of the country’s fish species with a 7 million US dollar grant from the government of Iceland to sensitize fishing communities in Buikwe district.

The depletion of fish has in the past driven up prices locally, hence threatening the livelihoods of close to 40 million people in East Africa.

The Permanent Secretary ministry of finance Keith Muhakanizi says the support will enhance capacity of the technical people and sensitize the populace.

This while signing the financing agreement between the government of Uganda and ICEIDA for support to Buikwe
