sharing in governance of extractive industries
Following a request by a GOXI member I have outlined the guidelines that Uganda Wildlife Authority has put in the hope that it will keep the protected areas safe.
Uganda Wildlife Authority has produced Oil Monitoring Guidelines
The Guidelines provide direction on how oil companies must conduct themselves when in the Protected Areas.
Key provisions in the guidelines include:-
- Oil Companies must remove waste immediately from PAs.
- The oil companies will conduct regular wildlife awareness for their staff and subcontractors
- Companies will as much as possible use the best available environmentally friendly technologies
-The companies shall be liable for any action or conduct of their sub-contractors
-Pipeline development will follow existing road networks
