From February 2018, the partnership between Uganda Tourism Association, Uganda Community Tourism Association and Gaiker Foundation have been implementing “Greening the Tourism Sector in Uganda”, GreenTU project, funded by the European Commission through the Switch Africa Green Programme.

The project’s main objective is to enhance the sustainability of the Tourism Sector to boost the inclusive green economy in the country through the promotion and implementation of SCP practices, environmental management systems, and sustainability certification systems in the MSMEs.

After three years of implementing the project, the GreenTU team will share the results achieved and invite a number of representatives of the Tourism sector in Uganda to a series of 4 workshops that will take place online between May and July. In these workshops, we will show the project results and how companies of this sector, mainly accommodation companies and tour operators, can benefit from the results achieved.

The dates for the 4 workshops are the following:

  1. Environmental Management System ISO 14001 in the accommodation sector Date: May 5th 2021 DONE!
