Uganda could find itself at war with the Democratic Republic Of Congo, due to climatic change effects on the Ruwenzori Mountains.
Environmentalists say the melting of Ice on the Rwenzori's has increased water flow down stream into the Semuliki River, which has been one of the features demarcating the boundary between Uganda and DRC.
Dr. Aryamanya Mugisha, the National Environment Management Authority Executive Director, says the melting of the ice which is believed to have begun in the last two decades is proof enough that climate change if affecting Uganda.

Cue Out ... Ugandan side we have lost territoryi //
He says the loss of territory, could spark off a dispute between Uganda and the DRC, because both countries have for long relied on River Semuliki as boundary marks.
Scientists predict that the Ice caps at the Rwenzori will be wiped out by 2050 if the temperatures continue to rise.
The State of Uganda Population report 2009 launched in Kampala says Climate Change could lead to 15-20 percent loss in agricultural production in the country.
David Ebong, the Maruzi County MP, also Chairperson of Parliamentary Forum on Climate Change, says government should now intergrate Climate change issues in every aspect of future planning for the country.
