In the first paper, Gidudu Anthony, Banura Constance and Namugga Angella explore the use of MODIS satellite imagery in monitoring water quality on lake Victoria in Uganda. This they relate with in-situ measurements or taking of water samples for further testing in the laboratory. They focus on the Lake Surface Temperature (LST) and Chlorophyl_a (Chl_a) variation from 2003 – 2010.

In the second paper, Mackay Okure, Godfrey Ssajja Ssali and Sad Jarall present results of a system consisting of a wind turbine of 200 kW, an Electrolyzer, and a 3.5kW peak electric load connected to an electric grid required to produce 4-5kg of hydrogen per day. They demonstrate the potential of such an integrated system to support remote investments in the production of electrolytic hydrogen from a non-polluting source for stationary and transportation activities.

In the third paper, Byaruhanga Joseph Kadoma, Lubwama Festo, and Lating Peter describe the state of implementing Uganda’s National Industrial Policy (NIP) with emphasis on the Iron and Steel sector. They interpret data collected from policy makers, implementers, industries in the iron and steel sector, experts and associations. They finally assess the process and the associated challenges, to devise means for better NIP implementation.

In the fourth paper, May-Britt Öhman and Eva-Lotta Thunqvist analyse the cultural politics of emotions with regard to dams, reservoirs, safety and human security. Their analysis is motivated by overtime social and ecological impacts of accidents on hydropower dams and their failures on the environment and its local inhabitants.
