Author
Maria Isabel Junqueira Braga
Description

APL2 of LVEMP II is part of a regional project involving five EAC Partner States. The higher development objective of the LVEMP II is to contribute to the East African Community (EAC) Vision and Strategy Framework for Management and Development of the Lake Victoria basin – “ a prosperous population living in a healthy and sustainably managed environment providing equitable opportunities and benefits”. The EAC Partner States are cognizant of the contribution of natural resources to economic growth, and of the strong link between their over-exploitation and poverty. Therefore, the project will contribute to broad-based poverty alleviation and improvement of livelihoods of people, by supporting sustainable management of shared natural resources of the LVB, which many communities depend upon. APL2 will adopt the shared regional project development/ objectives (PDO), which are to: (i) improve collaborative management of the transboundary natural resources of the LVB for the shared benefits of the EAC Partner States; and (ii) reduce environmental stress in targeted pollution hotspots and selected degraded sub-catchments to improve the livelihoods of communities, who depend on the natural resources of LVB.
