About Us

Welcome To NECEA


NECEA- Nangabo Environmental Conservation and Economic Empowerment Association is a not for profit community Based Organization(CBO) with the Directorate of Community Based Services (Wakiso District) in 2006.​ ​ It is a membership organisation comprised of residents in Nangabo Sub-County. NECEA works with communities within Wakiso District and beyond.

NECEA Sub-County has a population of 146,400 people as per the 2014 population and housing census. Over 90% of the population directly or indirectly depend on products and services from agriculture, forests, wetlands, etc. The Sub-County still faces several environmental related worrying trends which put economic, environmental and social developments at risk. 

These include soil degradation, deforestation, drainage of wetlands, loss of biodiversity, demographic pressure, poor farming, pollution of water bodies and poor sanitary conditions. The human consequences of degraded natural resources lead to malnourishment, bad health and increased absence from school due to more time collecting water and firewood. NECEA identifies and implements projects aimed at improving livelihoods and environment and conservation.
