Many of Uganda's natural ecosystems are undergoing conversion, degradation, and decline in a totally unplanned and uncontrolled manner. With the country's current population of 22 million set to double by 2020, these pressures may be insurmountable without sustainable action at both the national and community levels.

In response, interns, volunteers, and donors work with FSD to provide support for programs and initiatives that:
- Provide community outreach and trainings in farming, crop rotation, livestock rearing, food production, and vocational skills. Programs aim at empowering local farmers and workers while enabling these individuals to generate sustainable incomes.
- Create advocacy campaigns and increase community participation in proper sanitation practices, sustainable utilization of natural resources, and control of malaria and waterborne diseases. Initiatives shift environmental and health practices that affect everyday lives.
- Advocate for policies, bylaws, and programs that enhance sustainable lake resource management (Lake Victoria).
- Research and implement sustainable farming solutions and alternative income-generating activities that reflect environmentally sound principles.
- Introduce environmental approaches to local communities, such as sustainable agriculture, organic demonstration gardens, fuel efficient stoves, water purification systems, and various agribusiness strategies.
- Research ways to alleviate food shortages as well as conserve lake and land resources to enhance living standards and reduce human footprints.
