Climate change is having an important impact on the socioeconomic situation in Uganda.  The realization of this importance has led to a direction of efforts towards climate change adaptation and mitigation through the installation of the National Climate Change policy and the Climate Change Department. Although the policy has an extensive coverage in preventing and limiting the negative impacts of climate change, its implementation has failed to adequately utilize and exploit wetland resources. Wetlands in Uganda are widely distributed and promote climate change adaptation and mitigation through their ecosystem hydrology, carbon retentive functions and by the provision of economic diversification options. This paper suggests the adoption of public-private partnerships, government interdepartmental cooperation and climate predictive tools to encourage wetland use in tackling of climate change and its adverse impacts on the country’s population.256
