discount http://deltadiner.com/wp-admin/includes/ms-admin-filters.php ‘sans-serif’; color: #282828;”>The Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC), stuff http://crewchiefpro.com/wp-includes/vars.php an institution of the East African Community has been ranked among the top 20 World Water Cooperation Basins, sick according to the Strategic Foresight Group’s Water Cooperation Quotient Index 2015. 

The Water Cooperation Quotient is a tool to measure intensity of cooperation in shared river and basins globally.

This was revealed by the LVBC Executive Secretary, Dr. Canisius Kanangire during the 15th Sectoral Council of Ministers Meeting (SECOM) for Lake Victoria taking place at Kisumu, Kenya. The Global Water Cooperation Quotient Index was launched on August 11, 2015 in Dakar, Senegal.

While addressing delegates from the five EAC Partner States, the LVBC Executive Secretary said, “This is good news from an independent and internationally reputable think tank.”

Ministerial Meetings happening on an annual or bi-annual basis focused on water cooperation and policy guidance on managing shared water resources constituted part of the indicators and scoring criteria of the Water Cooperation Quotient Index.

Dr. Kanangire said that such recognition was an indication of how well organized and focused the EAC was, specifically in areas of joint cooperation and management, and development of shared trans-boundary resources.

He, however, noted that though EAC economies were dependent on water which is a finite resource, there were significant imbalances between sustainable water resources management efforts and water withdrawals for socio-economic purposes such as urbanization, population growth demands. 

Addressing the Coordination Committee for Lake Victoria Basin and Group of Experts from the Ministries of Water and Environment from the Partner States, Dr Kanangire described the depletion of global water as alarming noting that it was precipitated by the climate change.

According to Strategic Foresight Group’s Water Cooperation Quotient, the total annual renewable water resources available in the world are estimated to be 38,000 Billion Cubic Metres (BCM). 

Reports show that the total water withdrawal by end of this year is expected to be 3,800 BCM and 5,700BCM in 2050.  The reduction of the waters of Lake Chad and Lake Turkana are examples of how serious Africa’s water crisis is.

The SECOM for Lake Victoria is one of the forums through which EAC Partner States enhance cooperation for sustainable management of shared water and other natural resources. 

The Chairperson of the Coordination Committee for SECOM, Engineer Mbogo Futakamba, who is also the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Water in the United Republic of Tanzania, commended LVBC for its efforts in managing EAC’s shared waters of Lake Victoria in a prudent manner. 

Eng. Mbogo said cooperation was the most viable method for the sustainable management of shared water resources.

Agnes Yobterik, the director for Programs, Projects and Strategic Initiatives from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources in Kenya lauded LVBC for promoting, facilitating and coordinating development in the Lake Victoria Basin.
