The Lake Victoria Basin Integrated Water Ressources Management Programme Marks International Day for Biological Diversity

As people across the globe marked International Day for Biological Diversity on 22 May 2022, the Lake Victoria Basin Integrated Water Resources Management Programme curated evidence that sets out why it’s important to build a shared future for all life and resolve to protect the biodiversity of Lake Victoria.

 

Lake Victoria is a shared natural resource and relies on trans-boundary cooperation in order to survive. That’s why this year’s theme of building a shared future for all resonates with the LVB IWRMP. 

 

With continuous climate variability, the region is at risk of biodiversity losses. With changes in climate patterns, variability, and trends; fish reproductive patterns, distribution of macro-invertebrates and amphibians, and migration patterns for migratory water birds have been and will be adversely affected.
