In order to find the patterns across variables, this strategy entails data gathering at a specific point in time. The study population consists of 39 institutions and 2 ministries; that is Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development and National Environmental Management Authority-(NEMA) and 37 district local governments with mining operations. Districts were chosen in this study based on stratified random selection technique. Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and NEMA were picked for this study based on the strata. To guarantee that each group of the institutions have an equitable opportunity to engage in the study, a stratified random sampling technique has been adapted by the study.</p> <p><strong>Findings: </strong>The results in this study rejects the null hypothesis and accepts alternative hypothesis that Monitoring Operation is a significant moderating effect on Institutional Policy Implementation in Mineral Resource Management. This result implies that at different levels of Monitoring Operations, the effect of Institutional Policy Implementation varies significantly. Particularly, when managers do proper Monitoring Operations, it enhances the effect of Institutional Policy Implementation on Mineral Resource Management.</p> <p><strong>Recommendations:</strong> The policy implication in this study is that policymakers should enhance Monitoring and Accountability Mechanisms through regular audits and inspections, ensuring compliance with regulations and ethical mining practices. Thus; investing in educational initiatives and awareness programs will raise public awareness of the benefits of sustainable mining practices, empowering local communities to actively engage in decision-making to protect the natural resources.</p> 2023-10-05T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Robert Kyamanywa, Tomson Odongo, Aloysius Rukundo
