The Natural Resources Stewardship Programme (NatuReS), funded by BMZ (the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) and co-funded by UK Aid, is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (“GIZ”) in several countries. NatuReS promotes corporate natural resources stewardship and multi-stakeholder collective action for more sustainable management of natural resources, especially those resources that are linked to water. NatuReS aims to strengthen and support local partnerships to address shared water-related natural resources risks.
The Kampala Pollution Taskforce (PTF) is one of NatuReS Uganda flagship partnerships. It consists of the Ministry Water and Environment through the Directorate of Water Resources Management Department, Kampala Capital City Authority, National Water and Sewerage Company, National Environment Management Authority, and the Uganda Manufacturers Association (UMA). Under the PTF collaboration, the NatuReS programme is supporting partner institutions to strengthen collective action for a pollution free Greater Kampala that safeguards water and environmental resources while fostering inclusive growth and prosperity.
