It is likely that the agricultural practices in Namatala wetland affect the water quality function in terms of nutrient and sediment retention, nutrient export by papyrus and water storage. Because of the vital functions of this wetland for wastewater treatment and water flow regulation, a balance between the provisioning and regulating services is necessary to achieve sustainable management of the wetland. With sufficient information on the level of functions performed, integration of the multiple wetland use is possible
