ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study was to establish the impact of human activities on the wetland eco

system in Nakigalala Zone Kajjansi, wakiso district Uganda. The major concern was the factors,

activities and effects of human activities on wetlands. The study was conducted among

surrounding outgrowers, labour workers, brick laying companies, among others

The literature review covered relevant literature from other previous writers, journals,

documentary reviews of the impact of human activity on wetland eco-system were reflected in

the Literature review.The study used a descriptive study design in which both qualitative and

quantitative methods were adopted. In a cross-sectional survey, a total of 40 farmers were inter

viewed using several data collection methods including interviews, informal discussions based

on questionnaires and observation .The researcher was focused majorly on the activities involved

in human activities for example agriculture and their effects on the wetland ecosystem and this

was majorly on observation of these effects and practices.Data was analyzed, coded and

presented using pie charts.

Factors like continuos cultivation of the wetland leads to depletion of soil nutrients, lack of

awareness about wetland conservation, political factors of the rich being given free access to

wetland natural resources without follow ups and economic factors were all laeding to wetland

eco-system. After the study, the researcher found out that the use of chemical to kill weeds was a

common practice that changes the wetland ecosystem compostion through contaminating it and

making it inhabitable to the different kinds of biodiversity; use of fertilizers that degrade the soil

that without using them in a particular season would mean very poor yields, other pests and disease control using chemical for example kills birds and fish in the water; machinized harvesting leads to compaction of the soil particles reducing soil aeration.
