Welcome to Uganda Biodiversity Trust Fund

Uganda Biodiversity Trust Fund (UBTF), trading as UBF, is registered in Uganda as an independent Trust incorporated under the Trustees Incorporation Act in August 2016. UBF’s establishment was a result of the shortcomings in the biodiversity funding models which only focused on specific niches in Uganda, hence the need to address the gap in conservation financing within the country. UBF is therefore serving as a catalyst for mobilizing, managing, and channeling 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.

The UBF is currently governed by a ten-person Trusteeship constituted as a Board of Trustees (BoT) (whose composition is defined in the Trust Deed) and is supported by a management team headed by an Executive Director. The UBF headquarters are based in Kampala, Uganda.

UBTF Key Priority Areas

Building a case for biodiversity and climate change

UBF will contribute to the reduction of biodiversity loss through increasing public and stakeholder appreciation and understanding of the linkage between Biodiversity and Climate Change.

Partnerships and collaboration

UBF will strengthen partnerships and collaborations for improved stakeholder engagement and service delivery. In this respect, UBF will continuously build relations with Government, the Private Sector, Civil Society, Academia, and other CTFs.
