Subscribe to access this work and thousands more

Uganda is endowed with significant surface and ground water resources. However, water resources are under increasing threat of degradation as exhibited in reduced quality and quantities in major freshwater bodies. Soil erosion and industrial pollution have reduced surface water quality. Watershed degradation and climate change also reduce surface and ground water quantities. Water is a key strategic resource and access to clean water is a fundamental human right. As such maintaining good water quality and adequately managed aquatic resources is essential for advancing development and promoting a healthy population. Uganda has a number oflegislations in place, aimed at sustaining the water resources. In this research, I examine the different laws on water resource sustainability, portraying the loopholes therein, and making recommendations.
