Development threatens Uganda wetlands

As Kamapala grows, wetlands that still remain are disappearing fast, raising alarm among environmentalists.

    Uganda's wetlands are under threat due to a combination of construction, pollution and corruption. Sunday marks the anniversary of a convention that was signed in 1971 to protect the world's wetlands, which are a vital part of the natural environment.
