"Who is responsible?" A situational brief on the air pollution in Lugazi Town: ISER Policy Advocacy Brief No.4

Violation of the right to a clean and healthy environment adversely affects the enjoyment of a broad range of human rights, including the rights to life, health, food and water. Section 24 of Uganda’s National Environment Act requires NEMA to establish air quality standards, take measures to reduce existing sources of air pollution. Since NEMA has not yet come up with the air quality standards to control air pollution in the country, it is therefore the duty of the State including the local government to protect the right of the residents of Lugazi to a clean and healthy environment.
