Nordic climate project disrupts lives in Uganda: "We’ve been driven away"
Part-funded by Finnish taxpayers, this forestry project in East Africa is billed as a win-win for all involved – but the reality is less rosy.
“We used to grow rice where the forest is. Now we’ve been driven away. We have nowhere to grow our crops,”
The Swedes can avoid cuts in greenhouse gases emissions at home in relation to the amount of pollution soaked up by the Ugandan woods. In terms of the global climate, the net effect is apparently the same as if the reductions were made in Sweden and the forest had not been planted.
