LVEMPII Community - Driven Development Sub-projects Watch No.1

Annual LVEMP II Civil Society Watch Livelihood Case study No.1:
The report Assesses changes in community livelihoods within the selected areas in Rivers Nyando (Kenya), Simiyu (Tanzania) and Katonga (Uganda) with specific focus on Water and Sanitation, Renewable Energy and Aquaculture

The Lake Victoria Environmental Management Project Phase II (also known as LVEMP II) is an East African Community project under implementation in the five countries that share the Lake Victoria Basin. It is a trans-boundary project designed to achieve two development/global environmental objectives. Firstly, the project is meant to improve collaborative management of trans-boundary natural resources of Lake Victoria Basin and, secondly, reduce environmental stress in the targeted pollution hotspots and selected degraded sub-catchments as a means of improving the livelihoods of communities who depend on the natural resources of the Basin.

This review is based on Component 3 of LVEMP II :Watershed management (sub component I) which focuses on the reduction of environmental stresses – like sediment loads, nutrients, and agro-chemicals – from the Lake Basin through the implementation of non-point sources pollution mitigation and prevention measures. This part of the process of rehabilitating three priority degraded subcatchments of Lake Victoria.
A Review of Progress in Implementation of the Community- Driven Development (CDD) type Sub-projects under the Lake Victoria Environmental Management Project Phase II
(LVEMP II) within the River Catchments of Nyando (Kenya), Simiyu (Tanzania) and Katonga (Uganda)

The overall objective of the LVEMPII CDD Sub-projects Watch No.1 is to document,
share and create learning opportunities aimed at securing maximum communities’
benefit from the CDDs implementation within the established project span, in 3
rivers catchments as well as other areas where LVEMPII is being implemented.
Specifically, the studies were to assess and document community beneficiary
experiences, capacity, knowledge and level of adoption of Sustainable Land Management
(SLM) practices under LVEMPII in selected areas in the respective selected areas
within the river catchments, arising from the CDD –type Sub-projects that aim art
reducing non-point sources of pollution into Lake Victoria.
