    One of the most important functions of management is to ensure that employee work is more satisfying and to reconcile employee motivation with organizational goals. With the diversity of current jobs, this is a dynamic challenge. What people value and enjoy is influenced by many factors, including the influence of different cultural backgrounds. This research report examines employee motivation and its impact on employee performance. The study examines some common theories of motivation that can be used in an organization to improve employee performance. The study showed that employees have their differences in terms of the concept of motivation. Various forms of theories of motivation in literature have been debated along with their applications and implications. Three questions were examined: What is motivation? What kind of motivation can best be used to increase employee performance? The results of the study show that motivation can increase or decrease employee performance. If the chosen form of motivation meets the needs of the employee, their performance increases. If, on the other hand, the chosen form of motivation does not satisfy the needs of the employee, the benefit decreases. It therefore encourages organizations to understand the motivating need of each employee to improve performance.

    Globally, the natural environment faces a range of unprecedented challenges which are require a well-structured strategic approach in solving it. One of these challenges is the ever-increasing greenhouse gas emission. Currently majority of our daily activities directly or indirectly contributes to greenhouse gas emission. An effort was taken to understand better the principal function of livestock production in the pollution of the natural environment and to ascertain mitigation policies to curb the effects on human life.Theories such as the Enforcement Strategic Theory, Utilitarian Commitment Theory, Deterrence Theory, and the Social factors Commitment Based theory were used in this study. Already processed statistics, policy strategies, laws in economics as well as authors intuitive proposals and ideas were used in this study. It was ascertained that population growth, fluctuating economies, food preferences, and urbanization had imposed pressure on livestock production and the agricultural sector, thereby leading to the release of odor, ammonia, pathogens, excess phosphorus and nitrogen harming the natural environment and also contribute to greenhouse gas emission. A more significant proportion of the growth in crop production is anticipated because of a rise in the demand for livestock feed. It was found that most livestock farmers do not have a well-regulated operation in most developing countries. To reduce or eliminate these effects, the “truck-based approach” was therefore propounded and proposed to enhance the smooth movement of the livestock droppings to either the crop farm or to the processing house or to the storage room to reduce or prevent unnecessary dumping.

According to research conducted at Volcanoes National Park, Kagera National Park, and Nyungwe Tropical Vegetation, Rwanda has become the gorilla tourism destination of choice in Africa. This is significant when one considers the challenges faced by the critically endangered gorilla. We gathered the opinions of travelers and stakeholders involved in the gorilla tourism industry through the use of an online poll. Concepts about economics, society, culture, and the environment were investigated. Participants in the research were divided into three categories: stakeholders, visitors, and national actors so that stakeholder perspectives could be taken into account. To find out whether or not national citizens are aware of the significance of protecting parks to both the local park and the country as a whole. This paper will attempt to demonstrate how gorilla tourism has benefited the tourism industry in Rwanda. As a result of the efforts of the government to promote gorilla tourism on a global scale, the country has developed into an exciting tourist destination. On the show, the gorilla will be given a name, and Arsenal jerseys will be given their names.  Keywords: Gorilla, Trekking, Rwanda tourism, highland, and Lowland gorilla DOI: 10.7176/JTHS/62-04 Publication date: November 30th 202
