Improving the health of the African Great Lakes

24 September, 2020

A new collaboration between the Canada-based International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the African Center for Aquatic Research and Education (ACARE) will tackle some of the most pressing issues facing the African Great Lakes (AGL) today.

This new partnership will build on decades of freshwater science and policy research at IISD’s Experimental Lakes Area and the local networks and initiatives of the ACARE to improve research, information and management around the African Great Lakes.

During its first year, the new partnership will boost the activities of six Advisory Groups that were created to address specific issues on each of the African Great Lakes. Members of each group are harmonizing priorities on the lakes to advance work on scientific inquiry, monitoring, climate change, and education and training, among other issues.
