In May 2017, the African Great Lakes Conference: Conservation and Development in a Changing Climate was held in Entebbe, Uganda. This conference sought to increase coordination, strengthen capacity, inform policy with science, and promote basin-scale ecosystem management in the region. Because all of the African Great Lakes cross borders, the benefits they offer and the challenges they face are best managed at a basin-wide level.
Sharing information resources on ecosystem services and biodiversity in the African Great Lakes helps foster collaborative and more strategic efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to address ecosystem services and biodiversity. On this page we bring these information resources together with brief descriptions and direct links to help you quickly find those resources that meet your individual needs.
