چکیده انگلیسی


- We explored the prevalence and determinants of urban wild plant collection in Kampala.
- Nearly half of the respondents collected urban wild plants.
- Predictive variables of wild plant collectors are wealth status, age and location.
- The majority of wild plants collected are used as medicine.
- Food plant collection appears to be more seasonal.

In sub-Saharan Africa, many people depend on natural resources for their livelihoods. While urbanisation causes landscape changes, little is known of how this process affects the use of wild plant resources by urban populations. This study contributes to addressing this knowledge gap by exploring the prevalence and determinants of urban collectors of wild plants in Kampala, Uganda. During February to August 2015, 93 structured interviews were conducted in inner, outer, and peri-urban areas of the city. The findings in this study show that urban wild plants are used by almost half (47%) of the respondents, mainly for medicinal purposes but also as a complement to diets. The findings further indicate that residents with lower income, of younger age (<51 years old), and predominantly living in peri-urban areas are more likely to be urban collectors. Seasonality appears to be of greater importance in collection of food plants than of medicinal plants. Overall, these findings indicate that wild plants occupy an important role in the livelihoods and traditions of Kampala's residents, and we argue that this should be taken into account in urban planning projects.
