Welcome to the Lake Victoria Basin Knowledge Management System.

This system was designed by the Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) with support from the United Nations University, Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH), and aims to harness and disseminate knowledge gained by the LVBC on the sustainable management of the Lake Victoria Basin.

The system is a knowledge sharing tool for research findings, experiences and lessons learned for all stakeholders.
