Information and National Guidance Minister Rose Namayanja told journalists in Kampala that the move would harmonize the original 1994 WP with the Constitution, and environment and wetlands policies.
Namayanja said the cabinet decision followed consultations with key stakeholders such as researchers and tour operators. Among other changes, the new WP incentivises private sector investment in wildlife and conservation.
"We want to increase on the resource allocation to the tourism sector, specifically for extending and improving infrastructure to, within and around tourism sites," Namayanja said.
