Nakadama highlighted the essential role of the media in raising awareness and called for continued recognition of efforts towards environmental conservation.

    In a bid to highlight the crucial role of the media in environmental conservation, the National Environment Sustainability Awards ceremony was held at the Sheraton Hotel, with 3rd Deputy Prime Minister Lukiya Nakadama emphasizing the government's dedication to sustainable environmental practices.

    Representing the Prime Minister, Nakadama affirmed the administration's commitment to safeguarding the environment as a fundamental responsibility, essential for ensuring food security and the safety of Ugandans.

    "Protecting the environment is our God-given responsibility," Nakadama declared during her keynote address. "Our commitment to sustainable environmental practices is unwavering, and we recognize that the media plays a pivotal role in this endeavor. By informing and educating the public, journalists are essential allies in our efforts to protect our natural resources."

    The ceremony celebrated the exceptional contributions of journalists in raising awareness about environmental issues.

    Four journalists were honored for their outstanding work in environmental reporting, Moses Kidandi of Capital FM, Gerald Tenywa of New Vision, and Iryn Nakiweewa of C.B.S Radio.

    Their impactful stories have shed light on critical environmental challenges and inspired action among the public and policymakers.

    "Journalists like Moses Kidandi, Gerald Tenywa, and Iryn Nakiweewa are true champions of environmental conservation," Nakadama noted. "Their dedication to reporting on environmental issues has not only informed the public but also spurred necessary conversations and actions towards sustainable practices."

    Nakadama highlighted the government's various initiatives aimed at environmental protection, including reforestation programs, sustainable agriculture practices, and efforts to combat climate change.

    She stressed the importance of collaborative efforts between the government, private sector, and civil society in achieving environmental sustainability.

    "Ensuring food security and the safety of our citizens requires a multifaceted approach," Nakadama explained. "

    From reforestation to promoting sustainable agricultural practices, we are committed to implementing policies that protect our environment.

    However, these efforts can only succeed with the active participation of all stakeholders, including the media, private sector, and civil society."She also called upon the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to continue recognizing and awarding the efforts of individuals and organizations dedicated to environmental protection.

    "Recognition and encouragement are vital in motivating more Ugandans to engage in sustainable practices," Nakadama said. "

    NEMA should continue to highlight and reward the exemplary efforts of those who contribute to preserving our environment.

    "The award recipients expressed gratitude for the recognition and reiterated their commitment to environmental journalism. "It's an honor to be acknowledged for our work," said Gerald Tenywa of New Vision. "We are dedicated to continuing our efforts to report on environmental issues and inspire positive change."

    As the ceremony concluded, attendees reflected on the importance of environmental stewardship and the role of the media in driving sustainability. Nakadama's remarks and the recognition of the journalists underscored the collective responsibility of all Ugandans in protecting their natural heritage.

    "Let us all remember that protecting the environment is not just a duty for some, but a responsibility for all," Nakadama concluded. "Together, we can ensure a sustainable future for our country and generations to come."
