SUPPORTING COMMUNITIES IN UGANDA TO ADAPT TO
Blossom Africa acts in solidarity with communities in Uganda as they work to achieve greater resilience, to adapt to the changing climate and to achieve a better, more sustainable quality of life. We are proud to be allies in creating a vibrant network of committed people and organisations working together to tackle climate change and development issues.
CLIMATE CHANGE IN UGANDA
Blossom Africa has worked with communities in Bunambutye, Bulambuli District, Eastern Uganda since 2013. In this time we have witnessed the challenges faced by these communities on the frontline of climate change. More unpredictable and extreme weather resulting in too little or too much rain has led to frequent crop failure. This has a huge impact on the region which is largely reliant on subsistence farming for survival. Heavy rain in the Mount Elgon region has resulted in landslides and people have been forced to leave their homes, further exacerbating poverty.
