Protecting Lake Victoria for a green, resilient, and inclusive future

Lake Victoria

TTL: Shyam KC (Senior Water Resources Management Specialist), East Africa Region

Lake Victoria has the potential to be a growth engine of creating green jobs and markets and sustaining the livelihood of a large population in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi.

KGGTF Year 9 Grant - Supporting Lake Wide Inclusive Sanitation for Improving Water Quality in the Lake Victoria Basin - provides technical assistance and advisory support for inclusive sanitation services. The grant is in line with the Nile Cooperation for Climate Resilience (NCCR) Project, funded by the World Bank's Cooperation in International Water in Africa (CIWA).

The grant team recently published a new blog to reveal key drivers of water quality deterioration, the impacts of climate change, and the steps to raise the water quality agenda to the top.
