Petroleum exploration in Uganda has a long history dating back in 1938 when the 1st well (Waki B 1) was drilled by the Anglo European Company of South Africa. At that time oil prices and technology were low and therefore the prospects were found commercially unfeasible.

In 1997, Heritage was awarded Exploration Area 3(EA3) in the Semliki area followed by commercially exploitable reserves of oil (Mputa, Waraga, Nzizi, and Kingfisher) estimated at 300 Millionto 2.5 billion barrels in 2008 and 2009. Since then, there has been exponential growth in foreign investments to approximately $350 Million as of 2010.

REDD Economics Course

CSF partnered with the World Bank, GIZ (the German cooperation agency) and CEPAL (a UN economics agency for Latin America) to offer a course on REDD economics in Panama, focused on opportunity cost analysis. Over 25 participants from Latin American countries attended, representing conservation NGOs and governments. All are involved in on-the-ground REDD programs and projects. Exposure to opportunity cost analysis will allow them to enrich their actions through a better understanding of how economic factors influence land-owners decisions over deforestation actions. This improved understanding will be key for designing better REDD initiatives.
