While effective control measures such as chemotherapy, tsetse-trapping and restricted insecticide-treatment of livestock exist, implementation of such measures en mass has become increasingly impractical…
Validation of site-specific spraying of cattle for Trypanosomosis control in areas infested with Glossina Fuscipes Fuscipes in Uganda
In a bid to enhance bovine Trypanosomosis control in tsetse-infested rural areas in Uganda by livestock keepers, restricted application of Deltamethrin to legs and ventral abdomen of cattle was assessed for its effectiveness in reducing the prevalence of Trypanosomosis and tsetse apparent density in areas infested with Glossina Fuscipes Fuscipes over a 10-months period…

The ESMF provides guidance on how environmental and social aspects of ECAAT-P shall be identified, assessed and managed. Specific locations including Districts, Schools, and Link Farmers have not been identified at this stage; hence it provides a framework to assist project implementers to screen the projects at planning stage and institute measures to address adverse environmental and social impacts during implementation.
The major safeguards focus in ECAAT-P will be on the use and management of pesticides and agricultural chemicals at the selected farmers and schools’ gardens. In addition, issues of soil conservation will also be looked into the project especially in highland areas.
