CHALLENGES: Environmental stresses in the Basin
Four main types impacting the LVB:
 Stresses within the lake – overfishing, untreated liquid wastes,
water hyacinth, over-abstraction
 Stresses on littoral zones –
construction and farming in shoreline,
conversion of wetlands, poor solid
wastes management
 Stresses from the basin – land
degradation, deforestation, inflow of
water hyacinth, pollution from agrochemicals, sediment loads, poor solid
waste management
 Stresses from outside the basin –
nutrients (N and P) transported into
the basin by air, climate change
 Deteriorating water quality –
caused by increased
sedimentation, and pollution
and eutrophication
 Fluctuating lake levels – due to
unsustainable LVB water
management practices
 Overexploitation of natural
resources – caused by
increased basin population and
competition over natural
resources
 Resurgence of water hyacinth
 Climate change

Environmental Stress in LVB
Stresses within the lake –
– e.g., over-fishing, oil spills, untreated
liquid wastes, water hyacinth, overabstraction of water from the lake and
its basin.
– Fish Frame-survey 2012 shows
overfishing of through increase of illegal
gillnet by 26% but mostly for 2 ½” and 3
½”There was a serious increase in legal
nets of size > 10 by 343% and the 10” by
156% compared to 2010 Survey.
– In 2005 average BOD in, 5000Kg day
respectively in major cities
Littoral zones e.g., construction and
farming in shoreline, conversion of
wetlands, poor solid wastes
management.estimated about 75% of
Lake Victoria’s wetland area has been
affected significantly by human activity
•
Stresses from outside the basin nutrients
(N and P) transported into the basin by air, climate
change. In 2005/6 estimated atmospheric
depositions accounted for about 60% of the total
Phosphorus and over 80% of the total N loading to
the lake.
•
Stresses from the basin
–
e.g., land degradation, deforestation,
inflow of water hyacinth, pollution from
agro-chemicals, sediment loads, poor
solid waste management.
– Water hyacinth coverage in 2010 Kenya
10,000ha and TZ=540ha.
– The deforestation rate is estimated to be
55,000 to 100,000 ha per year, based on
habitat change from 1990-1995.

Introduction to REDD+
LVBC
006 - REDD+ FOR MT. ELGON ECOSYSTEM PROJECT CONCEPT NOTE
 REDD+ refers to Reducing Emissions from
Deforestation and forest Degradation and also
sustainable forest management, conservation and
enhancement of forest carbon stocks.
 A REDD+ program can encompass a range of
activities within a designated area, e.g: tree
planting, agroforestry, training & education,
microfinance.
 Governments – including Uganda & Kenya are
developing national REDD+ strategies applying
general UNFCCC guidelines and with donor support.
 Carbon markets can help to finance sustainable
land management activities for the benefit of
communities, global and local environment.
 Sub-national (project-based) initiatives can help
increase national capacity, and provide additional
resources to the national REDD+ program.
 The LVBC would like to work with relevant partners
to develop a trans-boundary, sub-national REDD+
initiative in the Mt. Elgon area.
LVBC
REDD+ Contd..
An international performance-based system is being developed for
REDD+ under the UNFCCC.
Voluntary carbon market standards have methodologies that allow
sub-national projects to receive carbon credits for REDD+ activities.
These follow the same principles that non-forestry UNFCCC carbon
credit projects.
Long-term the funding is likely to come from the private sector,
through markets. Total value of carbon market in 2011 was over 176
Billion US dollars.
The Mt Elgon REDD+ initiative will seek to use voluntary carbon
market funding for activities, AND will complement the national
systems that are being developed.
LVBC
1.
2.
REDD+ Project Objectives
To create a framework for a trans-boundary sub-national REDD+
programme including shared methodology components, monitoring
system, and harmonized governance mechanisms.
Implement at least 2 distinct REDD+ projects, one in Kenya and in
Uganda, which can be a national REDD+ demonstration pilot for
each country.
Specific Objectives
1. To define & agree on ecosystem boundary, map activities, and land use
patterns.
2. To establish appropriate institutional infrastructure
3. To assess potential benefits from, and negative impacts of, REDD+
activities:
4. To assist with the identification, implementation and management of
project activities by REDD+ proponents.
5. To assist with the promotion and funding of the REDD+ projects.
LVBC
Carbon Markets: What are they?
Theoretical example of how carbon markets work:
Factory in Europe
Produces:
150 tCO2 per year
Reduction commitment:
100 tCO2 per year
Carbon Credit Project (e.g.
from REDD initiative)
Sale of 50 t CO2 each year
Payment for the Carbon
Credits
The factory cannot reduce its
emissions
It buys 50 tCO2 per year from the
forest project
LVBC
REDD+ in Kenya and Uganda (1/2)
• Kenya developed its National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) in
2010, and other policy initiatives to tackle climate change issues have since been
developed. REDD+ is an important component of Kenya’s strategy. Vision 2030
also enshrines relevant environmental goals, e.g. in protecting Kenya’s “Water
Towers”.
• Kenya an Uganda is supported in national REDD+ strategy development from
the World Bank and other donors. GoK intends to
develop sub-national pilots.
• The National REDD+ initiative is with the Ministry of Water and Environment in
Uganda.
• A number of consultations have already been carried out, lead by IUCN in this
region.

Overview of Mt. Elgon REDD+ Strategy
Initiated in 2011 by MERECP, and finalized in 2012.
Mt Elgon is a critical, shared forest area and watershed for both Kenya and
Uganda and it is under threat.
Strong support from both Governments, input from NGOs (e.g. IUCN),
input from communities (workshops).
Discussions on the main drivers of forest cover change, existing
interventions and possible new interventions.
Strategy suggested phasing, local governance structures, benefit sharing
mechanisms, safeguards and next steps.

Mechanical Removal and Management of Water
Hyacinth in Lake Victoria
 Water hyacinth Eichhornia crassipes (Mart) Solms is a perennial plant
native to tropical America.
 First noted in East Africa in the 1930s and in Lake Victoria in 1989Uganda& Tanzania and in 1990 in Kenya
 Officially recognized a noxious invasive weed in the late 1980’s
 In Uganda, weed control efforts began in 1993 by involving the local
communities.
 In 1995 Tanzania implemented an integrated noxious weed management
control (bioligical, manual &, quarantine regulations and s control of
nutrient influxes )
 In Kenya the weed coverage was at 17,200ha by 1998 (4Njoka and
Kusewa, 2006).
 Weed control involved biological methods using weevils and mites and a
mechanical harvesting at peak infestation in 1998
 mechanical removal supported by biological control and sustainable
manual removal programmes are the most viable options
 need for strong coordination of weed control programs by the lake basin
governments.
