The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, The Most Reverend Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu, has attributed Uganda’s shortcomings in safeguarding the environment and mitigating the effects of climate change to a deficiency in the enforcement of laws and regulations.
Archbishop Kaziimba observed that Uganda possesses a comprehensive body of legislation, including stringent laws related to environmental protection and climate change.
However, he expressed concern that the implementation of the law is lacking.
The Archbishop made the remarks while addressing Christians gathered in Nakulabye-Kiwuunya to commemorate The Africa Climate Week.

According to a climate change report by Irish Aid, Uganda is currently struggling with the consequences of climate change which encompass shifting weather patterns, declining water levels, and a heightened occurrence of extreme weather events such as floods and droughts.
The Archbishop also urged all clergy to incorporate discussions on climate change and environmental protection into their sermons and public addresses. END.
