In line with EACOP’s environmental mitigation and conservation requirements, EACOP has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ugandan National Forestry Authority (NFA) to facilitate the continued partnership between the two entities for biodiversity conservation and natural resource management where their areas of interest coincide.

The EACOP route traverses a section of Taala Central Forest Reserve used mainly for eucalyptus forestry, and this MOU provides a mechanism for collaboration between EACOP and NFA for improvement of biodiversity conservation in the area as well as other forestry conservation initiatives as agreed upon.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Mr. Martin Tiffen, Managing Director, EACOP, stated that “EACOP is committed to meeting the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards including the International Best Practice methodology of ‘avoid, minimize, restore, offset’ concerning the environment in areas where direct and indirect impacts may occur during the pipeline development and operations. The company has put in place measures that will be implemented during and after construction of the pipeline to restore and enhance the environment. Among the planned interventions are biodiversity offsets which the Company will work with mandated government institutions like the NFA to support successful implementation.”

In his remarks, Mr. Tom Obong Okello, Executive Director, NFA, stated that “NFA and EACOP have previously worked together during the planning phase of the project for example during the assets valuation process of the resettlement action planning where they identified and enumerated trees in the projects’ footprint. This information will form the basis of EACOP’s reinstatement and tree replanting programs.”
