Abstract
The study determined the impact of urbanization on environmental conservation measures in the Namanve industrial park area, Mukono District, Uganda. The objectives were to: 1) evaluate the effect of urbanization on the environmental conservation measure, 2) document the environmental conservation practices/measures and 3) suggest mechanisms for the implementation of environmental conservation efforts in the Namanve industrial park area, Mukono District, Uganda. The study utilised a mixed research design in its approach. Hence, data was collected from 296 quantitative respondents and 10 qualitative respondents from the study area. The study discovered that the rate of conservation does not depend on urbanisation. Also, afforestation and reforestation were part of the environmental conservation practices/measures. Second objective findings indicate that continued urbanisation has reduced environmental conservation measures. Thirdly the study indicates that there are some mechanisms put in place for the implementation of environmental conservation efforts in the study area such as air pollution control mechanisms, green environment conservation, the provision of information controls for the environment and the provision of conservation policies. The study concludes that there is ineffectiveness in the environmental conservation practices in Namanve industrial park. Furthermore, it affirms that there is limited environmental conservation practices/measure in Namanve Industrial park. The study concludes that increased urbanisation reduces the environmental conservation measures in Namanve industrial park area, Mukono District, Uganda. The study recommends sustainable environmental practices that will sustain the environmental conservation approaches engaged in the study area.
