The purpose of the Conservation through Development in Southwest Uganda (DTCP) Project was to provide support to research by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The project initiated after an agreement between USAID and WWF started in 1988 with the primary goal of enhancing the environmental quality of life for approximately the 86,500 subsistence farmers in southwest Uganda. The project was undertaken by USAID, CARE and WWF in three counties within two districts over a 10-year period. The project was financed by USAID, CARE and WWF. This report derives from a first year evaluation. Findings included: Measurable progress was made by the time of the evaluation toward the goal of protecting biological diversity in the forest; A good start towards raising awareness to rural people was made, but too early to measure changes in agricultural production; Donor funds would be exhausted before or at the end of the project; Participation of the government of Uganda's extension personnel was not a factor in the accomplishments reported.
