USFS technical experts provided guidance on structuring an analysis of the hydrology of the region, with a particular focus on the improvement of the water supply for local communities. The specific goals of this mission were as follows: 1. Evaluate the overall state of water resources in Mgahinga and Bwindi National Parks; 2. Identify appropriate methods for surveying water sources of sufficient quantity and quality for local communities, wildlife, and forest ecosystems. Perform on-the-ground surveying of water sources with IGCP staff in as many areas as possible, given time restraints; 3. Assess, to the greatest extent possible, the demand on water resources by local communities and forest ecosystems; 4. Provide recommendations on sustainable management of the source areas in order to assure long term water availability; 5. Present a half-day workshop for local natural resource managers on water resource issues and recommendations for the region.
