"Green: at what price?" - Ugandans forced off land for reforestation project

by Nicky Milne

Place investigates Uganda's Bukaleba Forest Reserve where the Ugandan government has leased over 8,000 hectares of land to Norwegian-based  Green Resources, the largest forestation company operating in Africa.

"Green: At What Price?" tells the story of the forest inhabitants who are locked in a battle with Green Resources for formal rights to land.

This film explores how land acquisitions for growth and development can compromise the livelihoods of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. We hear from the villagers, the Land Ministry, the company at the core - and reveal a scenario playing out across Africa and around the globe.
