PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Bujagali Energy Limited is committed to a proactive and dynamic consultation program designed to maximize community awareness of the hydropower project and to solicit community input and partnership. We believe this close collaboration with interested organizations and individuals will help us construct and operate the best project possible for Uganda and communities located near the site.

Since early 2006, our project team has implemented a comprehensive "Public Consultation and Disclosure Program" (PCDP). To date, we have held numerous public meetings and discussions with a wide range of stakeholders including (but not limited to):

  • Local communities (including local residents and leaders)
  • Government agencies
  • Non-government organizations (environmental and other interest groups)
  • Businesses (including tourist-related interests in the area)
  • Cultural groups (the Kingdoms of Buganda and Busoga)

The PCDP is posted in the "Documents & Maps" section of this web site. Important features of the Consultant Plan include the formation of Sub-County Consultation Committees and periodic meetings with local and national stakeholders and government agencies. Public consultation activities will continue through project construction and operation. Consultations will continue to focus on implementing the Community Development Action Plan and keeping communities aware of project construction activities.

Many important project documents are posted on this website (Key Project Documents). Some documents such the December 2006 Social Environmental Assessment (SEA) Report are also available for review at numerous national and local government offices and libraries throughout the region, including the Government of Uganda's National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) at:

NEMA House
