The paper unveiled legal loopholes in the current legal framework that is causing the prevalence of tree cutting for charcoal business in Uganda. The high demand for charcoal products has forced majority of the poor to engage in this Lucratic business but at the expense of climate change. So far several parts of the country are grappling with cases of droughts and floods hence a looming famine awaits and in some areas of the country, people are dying of the same. This paper recommends that unregulated tree cutting for charcoal business be streamlined by coming up with stringent policies and laws that can equally address this pandemic.
