The lake has other problems, however. Algae have proliferated, due to industrial and sewage pollution, depriving the lake of oxygen. More than three million litres of human waste drain into the lake every day, and the Swedish development agency, SIDA, estimates that Kenya, with the smallest share of the lake’s shoreline, is its main polluter. Modified Equatorial Climate of Lake Victoria Basin. In this region, modification results from relief and influence of the lake. The rainfall totals in the region show considerable variations and are in any case much lower than a typical equatorial climate. The enclosed basin of Lake Victoria tends to increase temperatures, although the lake.

In addition to well-publicised changes, such as the drying up of Lake Chad, one of the Sahel's largest freshwater reservoirs, or the declining Lake Faguibine in the Niger River Basin and falling water levels in Lake Victoria, the Africa Water Atlas presents satellite images of . This is due to the volcanics that define most of Victoria's eastern watershed. Since the early Tertiary (and intensifying in the Miocene to continue to present day), volcanic emanatations have buried the periphery of the Lake Victoria Basin and caused the associated regional uplift and rift valley formations.

The objectives of the Lake Victoria Environmental Management Project are to: a) maximize the sustainable benefits to riparian communities from using resources within the basin to generate food, employment and income, supply safe water, and sustain a disease-free.   A Jumuiya steam ship submerged by hyacith in L.

The expert input was invaluable and sincere. Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) joins other EAC Organs, Institutions and Apex Organizations in celebrating the 20th Anniversary Observance of EAC Regional Integration starting from 22ndrd November at the Commission’s Nyanza Regional Headquarters, Kisumu, Kenya.

LVBC Celebrates 20th EAC Integration. Draining an area ofkm2 (Lake Victoria Basin Commission a), Lake Victoria Basin is one of East Africa’s most prominent landmarks. It not only provides the headwaters of the White Nile but is also central to the development and regional integration of the East Africa Community.

The Lake itself is shallow but in terms of surface area it is the second largest freshwater lake in the. safety of life, navigation and preservation of aquatic environment of the Lake Victoria Basin; and AWARE that Partner States have designated the Lake Victoria Basin as an economic growth zone, established a Sectoral Council and agreed to establish a body for the management of Lake Victoria;File Size: KB.

Lake Victoria receives its water additionally from rivers, and thousands of small streams. The Kagera River is the largest river flowing into this lake, with its mouth on the lake's western shore.

Lake Victoria is drained solely by the Nile River near Jinja, Uganda, on the lake's northern nates: 1°S 33°E / 1°S 33°ECoordinates: 1°S. The climate of the Lake Victoria basin is generally tropical humid, with temperatures ranging from 15 °C, in the highlands, to 28 °C, in the semi-arid areas (Awange and Ong'ang'a, ).

Lake Victoria Basin extends into five countries, namely Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, and Rwanda. In the Lake Victoria Basin (LVB), climate change is inadequately integrated into regional transboundary water catchment management which is increasing the vulnerability of LVB communities.

This problem is expected to intensify under the conditions of future climate change, specifically. The HoPE-LVB project reduces threats to biodiversity conservation and ecosystem degradation in the Lake Victoria Basin while simultaneously increasing access to.
