The population of Mbale district as well as of the whole country is growing, estimated at 3.4% to 4.0% for Mbale City. Settlements develop alongside roads and close to water sources; they can be characterized as semi-permanent. Access to information about natural resource management is still low.

Currently, the environmental consequences of the lack of information and population growth are a serious land pressure leading to land degradation and water pollution.
