A Project Identification and Selection Procedure has generated a longlist of 25 eligible investment projects from the 5 LVB Partner States respectively, and through a screening process, will arrive at a set of five priority investments which will be considered by the Lake Victoria Basin Commission, in cooperation with Development Partners, for further preparation, funding and implementation. The process is shown below.
Project Identification and Selection Procedure
The project proposals were made by national institutions responsible for sanitation, wastewater collection and treatment, environmental management, and water resources management. The proposed investments are not only limited to infrastructure development, but also extend to solid waste management, capacity development, support for planning and policy, community initiatives, and livelihood improvement.
The screening process has been completed and soon the prioritization process will be undertaken to arrive at five priority projects that will be advanced to preparation and implementation phases. We look forward to sharing the results with you.
