Synthesis Report of LVEMP

Lake Victoria is an international waterbody that offers the riparian communities a large number of extremely important environmental services. Over the past four decades or so, the lake has come under increasing and considerable pressure from a variety of interlinked human activities such as overfishing, species introductions, industrial pollution, eutrophication, and sedimentation. The lake provides various resources to its riparian communities.
