Destruction of Central Forest Reserves is rampant in Uganda, given the increasing encroachers who illegally invade the forests that are under government control, through the National Forest Authority (NFA). The concerned citizens living along some of the central forest reserves have now formed association, MANRUIA, through which they can take up the task of protecting the forests. The association has signed an agreement with the NFA to protect the forest and as well make good use of it.
