ABSTRACT This work emphasized on the examining the role of education and community participation in local development projects in Katakwi District: a case study of the Conserve Uganda. The study was guided by three objectives that included to establish the level of community participation in the design and implementation of Local Development Projects, to find out the factors that affect community participation of people in Local Development Projects and to suggest possible measures to enhance community participation in Local Development Projects. The study was guided by a cross sectional survey design that included both primary and secondary sources of data. The findings indicated a positive response from the respondents on the extent of community participation in the design and implementation of the Conserve project with a total highest mean of 3.4500, in the section of the factors that affect community participation in the conserve project, the findings indicated the highest rating as 36667 as inadequate knowledge on ways to conserve the environment. Amongst the solutions to the challenges of community participation, the research found that most respondents agreed with sensitization or education of the public on the benefits of community involvement in conserving the environment (2.3000). the study further concluded that community participation existed in the first phase of the Conserve Project programme implementation (200 1-2007) but has been on decline. Forms and scope of participation by the beneficiary farmers include selecting enterprises, forming farmers’ groups, electing group leaders and representatives, attending training, and group and inter-group meetings. Finally, politicking Conserve Project programme need to be avoided as much as possible so that the programme remains a development programme rather than a political tool.
