The study was conducted in the two constituencies, Katerera and Bunyaruguru that make up
Rubirizi district. An investigation was conducted to assess the role of government policy
relating to soils, wetlands and forest conservation. The study executed six specific objectives
but the general objective was to find out how the government has involved the local people at
policy and decision making levels nsed in conservation of soils, wetlands, forests and to
examine the importance of soils, wetlands, forests conservation to the local communities of
Rubirizi. Both descriptive and exploratory research designs were employed to collect data.
Systematic Random sampling techniques was applied in information collection. A sample
size of 60 respondents was used. The tools used involved administration of written
questionnaires, interviews, observation, photography and documentary review. They were
later processed and analyzed using excel files and Microsoft excel statistic program.
The respondents showed positive attitude in relation to the conservation of natural resources
and understood their importance. There was link between people and the environment they
live in. In spite of the positive attitudes by the local communities, they still lack essential
information about the importance of Wetlands conservation and environmental management
at a large. Therefore, this calls for need for environment education programs and should
consider the community member values as a means of enhancing sustainable conservation
projects. The high percentage on direct and indirect natural resource uses showed need for
local communities to develop positive attitudes towards natural resources especially through
community participation since these derive lots of benefits
