UWEWK 2023 banner

Uganda Water and Environment Week (UWEWK) is an annual weeklong event organized by the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) through the Water Resources Institute (WRI). Since its inception in 2018, the event seeks to contribute towards the attainment of Sustainable Socio-economic Transformation and achieving Ugandan National Development Plan and vision 2040. It provides an interface between sector actors and other stakeholders for knowledge exchange, dialoguing, learning for improvement of Uganda’s water and environment resources.

This year UWEWK2023 will explore:

  • The linkage between climate resilience and economic growth in emerging challenges in management and development of water and environment resources, and the need for a systematic review of links, policy options and knowledge gaps.
  • The balance between pre-disaster and post-disaster investment needs to be examined more explicitly
  • Innovative financing to improving access to capital for medium and long-term investments in Water and Environment developments with the implementation of measures to support climate resilience infrastructure.
  • A better understanding of which tools work well for vulnerable populations and recognizing that different tools might be needed to respond to different needs

For more information visit the UWEWK 2023 website.
