HITS CM 5.3: What should be done to restore the forest cover in Uganda?

Background


Over the past decades, trees have been cut down at a concerning rate. They are usually cut down to develop infrastructure or to sell for purposes such as charcoal, furniture and paper. Without forests, rain patterns change, animals are displaced and humanity in general is threatened. 

There have been a number of international and local movements that have been created to restore Uganda’s forest cover. However, there needs to be more action taken from different actors (sides) to ensure forests countrywide are protected and that there are more tree planting initiatives. 

Question  

What should be done to restore the forest cover in Uganda?

A)  The government should enforce or implement existing tree planting and cutting policies. 
B)  All citizens should take part in planting trees.
C)  The government should take initiative to plant trees on government-owned land.
D)  International companies should compensate for their tree cutting through massive tree planting.
