Under the stewardship of The Nature Conservancy, the Lake Tanganyika Authority Secretariat, the 2017 African Great Lakes Conference steering committee, the University of Nairobi, and the African Center for Aquatic Research and Education, the African Great Lakes Inform (AGLI) is taking a Great Lakes to Great Lakes approach – combining the strength of our collective global experiences, knowledge and partnerships to establish an internet based information exchange platform. As part of this approach, AGLI staff come from both the North American and the African Great Lakes.

The Nature Conservancy currently staffs and manages African Great Lakes Inform, with regional and global ownership transferring to its partners: the University of Nairobi and the African center for Aquatic Research and Education during 2018-2019.
