dc.description.abstract A change of the status of economies, caused by globalization of economies in the world, is an important and prominent feature of current industrial development in developing countries like Uganda. This has posed a challenge on structural adaptation in the area of production, investment and business as large quantities of waste are generated as by-products and released into the environment resulting into pollution a common feature of global economic development. Therefore, there is need to establish environmental monitoring systems to minimize the ecological impact of industrial activity and to improve business performance for sustainable industrial development. The research anticipated prospecting waste generation among industries in Kampala Industrial and Business Park (KIBP). This was done by taking stock of the existing and prospecting companies, establishment of the current waste generation among in the industries, reviewing of the environmental impact assessment reports from different industries, and establishing the consistence between the current industries' activities with those initially planned. The research gathered data from different sources indicated that 3205.9 tons of waste is generated annually of which 63% of the solid wastes are biodegradable. A number of waste management approaches were identified and research data indicated that 43% of waste generated is collected and transferred, 37% recycled and the rest is incinerated and composted on site by the generators. Research data also showed that over 39types of industrial wastes are generated in KIBP and over 25 types of that can be recycled and reused. Furthermore, the data collected indicated that, about 378,760 litres or waste water is generated per week in KIBP of which 36% of that is treated and reused and the rest is discharged off using other methods. This therefore possess a great threat to the environment if not checked urgently. At the end of the research, the location of industries and businesses per coordinates, key pollutants, size of industrial operation per coordinate and waste generated in each were identified as in the report. These findings will assist in projecting the effect of pollution to the environment in the near future with the help of processed data for waste generated in the park which will help in establishing an eco-friendly industrial park for sustainable industrial and business development. en_US
