Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Geology, Mineralogy, Soil Science, Makerere University (College of Agriculture and Environmental sciences), course: Bachelor of Arts (Geography Major), language: English, abstract: The study focused on examining the impacts of environmental change on the water potential of Bugingo wetland water resources in Mayuge District. The data analyzed from the study were based on objectives and research questions. These were to identify the major climate change impacts in the region, to identify the major causes of wetland degradation, identify the forms of wetland degradation and to examine the influence of climate change impacts on wetland water resources. Data was collected in all the three parishes using systematic random sampling among the farmers. Observation and use of transect walks across the wetland were the major ways of data collection where two plot of 200m one within the wetland and one on the flanking hill. A random sample of 25 respondents was selected for interview purposes. It was mainly found out that, the environmental change impacts involved both the climate change and all the land degradation processes that threaten the existence of water resources in the wetland which is increasingly becoming a threat in the area. In conclusion, Environmental change impacts cause wetland degradation and water storage capacity in the region as per the analysis. Therefore, the establishment of a broad network comprised of wetland scientists, climate change scientists, economists, the public, agricultural community, land-use planners and policy makers. This is the one of main suggested solutions to the problem since it can create routes through which information and research results are communicated regularly as observed in chapter five.
