Bachou, Salim A ; Nyantahe, Samuel M ; Ichang’i, Mathenge (2005)

From the 1960s, the Lake Victoria environment and its natural resources have come under severe stress as a result of multiple activities arising from human population in the basin which have resulted in serious environmental problems. In order to reverse the situation, the three riparian countries of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda agreed to implement the Lake Victoria Environment Management Project (LVEMP) as a regional programme aimed at restoring a healthy and stable lake ecosystem that can support, in a sustainable way, the many human activities in the catchment and in the lake itself. The project started in mid-1997 with funding through Credit from the International Development Association (IDA), Grant from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and contributions by the three riparian governments
