LVB IWRM Programme
Feasibility Workshops held for HPIs
The Lake Victoria Basin Integrated Water Resource Management Programme made further progress towards implementation of a total of four high priority investments (HPIs), when three feasibility study workshops were successfully held in Kigali and Mwanza in November 2020 and in Kisumu in December 2020. The investments target the protection and conservation of valuable water resources of the entire lake basin by the physical reduction of the current pollution and thus support the sustainable development of the region.

Development partners KfW and the European Union joined together in the online workshops with the Lake Victoria Basin Commission and the Partner State's project execution agencies to discuss the progress and feasibility of the Kigali Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant in Kigali, Rwanda, the Sewer Connection Upgrade in Mwanza, Tanzania and the Informal Settlement Sanitation Programme in Kisumu, Kenya. The workshops were organised by the LVBC Programme Coordination Unit with support from the Programme Management Consultant, Sweco. The technical details of the investments were elaborated in comprehensive presentations delivered by the Implementation Consultant CES-AKUT. These presentations formed the basis of lively and productive discussions by all participants.
All three projects are poised to proceed towards the detailed design stage as well as the signing of the programme financing agreements with the respective Partner States.
The Lake Victoria Basin Integrated Water Resource Management Programme is financially supported by the German Government and the European Union.
