Project Objectives

The objective of the project would be to improve the livelihood of people living around the Lake and to improve natural resource management in and around the Lake by: (i) developing a common approach to the sustainable management of the Lake’s resources; (ii) improving livelihoods and the sustainability of fishing and farming practices in and around the Lake and critical catchments; and (iii) supporting measures to reduce the sediment and nutrient inflow into the Lake.

The main target groups of the project are small and medium scale fishermen, farmers and lakeshore communities who would benefit from improved fishing and agricultural practices and diversified income opportunities; farmers and communities in key upstream pollution sources; and key institutions that would oversee the Lake and catchment management.

This is expected to contribute to: (i) the improvement of the Lake’s health by reducing pollution and increasing awareness of the fragility of the ecosystem; and (ii) conservation of aquatic biodiversity of the Lake by encouraging improved fishing practices and better management of lake resources.
