Welcome to Uganda Biodiversity Trust Fund

Thank you for looking us up! Uganda Biodiversity Trust Fund, known by the brand name, UBF, is registered in Uganda as an independent Trust incorporated under the Trustees Incorporation Act in August 2016.  UBF is a grant-making institution that supports its partners to implement biodiversity conservation projects in Uganda. UBF’s establishment was a result of the shortcomings in the biodiversity funding  hence the need to address the gap in conservation financing within the country. UBF is therefore serving as a catalyst for mobilizing, managing, and channelling financial resources for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in Uganda for the benefit of current and future generations and the intrinsic value of nature.
