“Resultantly, revenue generation has increased from Shs42b in 2014 to Shs124b in 2018.

Additionally, the tourism foreign exchange earnings have expanded from US$834m in 2012 to US$1.6b in 2018/19, making tourism the highest foreign exchange earner,” president Yoweri Museveni said.

In this elapsing term (2016-2021), NRM government focused on recovery of wildlife populations and development. This was done through controlling poaching and illegal wildlife trade, management of invasive species, conservation education and awareness as well as human wildlife conflicts mitigation, according to president Museveni.
