Uganda wetland

Factsheet: Commercial Flower Farms Integrated Catchment Management Partnership

Wetlands in Uganda form a unique ecosystem which not only supports diverse animal and plant life, but
also has the power to contain, store and purify large quantities of water. Around Greater Kampala,
wetlands are mostly located on the shores of Lake Victoria. The Lake Victoria basin however is experiencing rapid population growth with unplanned urban settlements and unsuitable agricultural practices, which are the biggest drivers for a deterioration in water quality and degradation of precious wetlands in the area. One water-intensive sector present in the area is the floriculture sector – 13 out of 15 commercial flower farms in the country are located in Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA) around the Lake Victoria basin.
