LVEMPII Community-Driven Development Subprojects Watch No.2 ( September 2014)

Community – Driven development type (CDD-type) subprojects of the Lake Victoria Environment Management Project (LVEMPII) are aimed at reducing non-point sources of pollution, through control of soil erosion by adopting sustainable water and soil management practices. This will in turn increase water use efficiency and improve water quality in the Lake Victoria Basin (LVB). CDD-type watershed management subprojects comprise the natural resources conservation interventions, which generate predominantly public goods or benefits and livelihood improvement activities that are largely household-based, and with substantial private benefits.
