The National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) has introduced the Environment Licence Management Information System (ELMIS) to advance its commitment to sustainable development and environmental stewardship.

Acting NEMA Executive Director, Mr. Francis Ogwal, emphasized that this system will revolutionize how environmental licensing is managed, promoting sustainable development and the preservation of natural resources. He stated, “The implementation of this system reflects our dedication to harnessing technology for the betterment of our environment and society.”

NEMA aims to usher in a new era of streamlined and efficient environmental licensing, targeting all registered environmental practitioners in Uganda. These practitioners have undergone comprehensive training, covering modules like e-licensing, project briefs, Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) e-certificates, and online payment for NEMA services.

Mr. Ogwal highlighted that ELMIS eliminates the need for physical paperwork, reducing administrative burdens and enabling a seamless submission process for project briefs, terms of reference, ESIA reports, and more.
