These National Parks are famous for being habitats of the few remaining populations of Mountain Gorillas in the world. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is also a world heritage site due to its unique ecosystem functions. The two parks are also transboundary in nature as they border Rwanda, and Democratic Republic of Congo.
This process will result in the production of a ten-year General Management Plan (GMP) for the two Parks through consultations with various stakeholders.
The Executive Director therefore wishes to invite suggestions from all interested panics on what should be considered for the General Management Plan effort. Plan issues to be addressed during the process will include but are not limited to:
- Resource protection and management (natural, cultural and scenic resources)
- Land protection and boundary issues
- Community conservation and community involvement in landscape and natural resources management.
- Benefit sharing and sustainable resource utilization
- Tourist experience, use, development and access
- Tourist information, interpretation and education
- Tourism facilities
- Park operations, maintenance and access
- Research and Monitoring
- Collaborative Management
- Cultural issues
