ABSTRACT The study focused on wetland degradation in Uganda: A case study of Kiwanataka wetland in Kampala District.lt was carried out to examine the varrious causes of kinawataka wet land degradation,asses the human activities carried in and around the wet land and to establish solution for the problems brought about as a result of kinawataka wet land degragation. The wetland of Kinawatalca in Kampala was used as a sample for the study. Questionnaires, interviews, literature review, recording, photography and observation were employed as tools in the study. Results from the study indicate wetland degradation being on the increase to the extent that in the near future, Kiwanataka wetland resources may face extinction. This has been attributed to uncontrolled development activities by the people, poor planning and coordination among the various stake holders namely NEMA, KCC and Industrial developers, ignorance among the people of the need for wetlands, weak legal framework and enforcement capacities among the partners involved in wetland conservation and environment generally. From the Study therefore it is concluded that there is need for an amendment in the NEMA Act and other related laws so as to give it powers to punish offenders involved in wetland degradation. Coordination and cooperation among the environment management agencies NEMA, KCC, planning unit, developers and the local community. Community participation in the conservation of wetlands and the Environment generally should be encouraged through seminars, mass media especially up to the grassroots. If there no is a positive change in wetlands conservation and environment generally, Kampala District will continue facing severe floods, pollution, loss of bio-diversity in wetlands and general change in its microclimate.
