Urbanisation and increasing populations in urban areas have led to many problems. Issues stemming from urbanisation include social issues, economic and environmental problems through urban sprawl. These problems include pollution, urban poverty, overcrowding and traffic, depletion of resources, land conflicts, unemployment, high crime rates and lawlessness and development of slums.

The importance of land in Uganda is huge, and the land issue is gaining more and more importance. The number of conflicts, both in court as well as out of court, is undeniably on the rise, tensions are increasing and ownership of land is becoming a political debate.
