Uganda lost 27 percent (1,329,570 hectares in total or 88,638 hectares per year) of its original forest cover between 1990 and 2005.18
resources are likely to be exhausted by 2050.19
At this rate, forest Gov-
ernment efforts to increase forest cover through a Public-Private Partnership approach over the last decade have resulted in greater investment in for- estry (mainly in the forest reserves than on private land). Although private financing in forestry is in- creasing (USD 50 million between 2002-2009),20 donor financing generally plays a crucial catalytic role in forestry investment.
