Abstract: At present, there are various laws in Ethiopia relevant to environmental pollution control. However, the problem of pollution has not been controlled and continues to adversely affect the environment, the health, social and economic aspect of human beings. Thus, a study towards the major causes for the lack of effective implementation of the environmental pollution control legislation is important. In order to achieve the objective of the study, literatures were reviewed, and questionnaire, key informant interview and focus group discussions were used as main research instruments. Evaluation packages were prepared; to measure the level of prevailing institutional capacity, coordination, and awareness raising programs; based on the relevant requirements stipulated under the national Environmental Pollution Control Proclamation and on the basis of the standards issued by UNEP for African countries. The result has indicated that, lack of institutional capacity both from the side of EPA and sectoral agencies, low/weak inter-institutional coordination between EPA and relevant sectoral agencies and inadequate environmental awareness raising programs were identified as major challenges for the proper implementation of the environmental pollution control legislation. Thus, improving the institutional capacity of EPA and relevant sectoral institutions, strengthening the coordination between relevant institutions through creating an enabling environment for multi-stakeholder partnership, and enhancing the environmental awareness raising activities are recommended to improve the implementation of the Environmental Pollution Control legislation.
