Abstract: As an institution set up in May 1995 and became operational in December 1995, the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) has been since then an over seer in the protection of the environment through sectors like the civil society, local governments, district levels and in the private sector in Uganda because it has the mandate to do so as provided by the constitution of the republic of Uganda. Therefore, this research project is basically carried out to establish the exact role of the NEMA in the management of the environment in Uganda. This research study was carried out with the aim of establishing the environmental laws that help NEMA to carry out its enforcement, challenges it faces in doing so and to establish the solutions to these challenges. This study enlarges the scope of knowledge in the area of environment protection in Uganda which would be of importance to all the policy makers at all levels if they are to properly protect the environment. The data for this research study was acquired using both qualitative and quantitative methods as it was the only way the researcher would reduce the biasness in data collection. The study majorly found out that NEMA to a wider extent tries to play its role in environment protection however it has been let done by other institutions in the country like the politicians and leaders at local government levels who get involved in environment degradation for their own selfish interests and this has to a bigger extent increased the violation of environment laws in the country which negatively impacts on the environment.
