According to Paul Hatanga the project manager; ā€œThis is a pilot project that ends in December 2021 however the results of the project will determine the next cause of action, our goal is focused on the sustainability of real time and corrected forest management data that will be collected and shared for better management, planning and monitoring of central forest reservesā€.

While opening the training, the Coordinator Natural Forests Management at NFA, Stephen Galima noted that the time is ripe for NFA to strengthen its capacity in the use information communication technology tools in monitoring and management of forests because the trends have changed and thanked WCS for being a supportive partner in this area
The 2017 National Biomass Report reveals an increase in forest cover from 9% in 2015 to 12.4% in 2017 thus this success should be jealously kept by improving management approaches, enhance protection, carry on restoration program, establish more plantations so as to achieve the National Development Plan III which targets to increase Ugandaā€™s forest cover to 15% by 2025.
