    Abstract : This study explores shallow lake numerical hydrodynamic processes that support model development and validation, extreme events and effects of water circulation in Lake Victoria. Lake Victoria is the second largest freshwater lake in the world, and the largest in East Africa. READ MORE

  5. 5. Uncertain Futures - Adaptive capacities to climate variability and change in the Lake Victoria Basin

    Author : Sara Gabrielsson; LUCSUS; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; adaptive capacities; climate vulnerability; collective action; Lake Victoria Basin; smallholder farmers; sustainable adaptation; sustainability science.;

    Abstract : The Lake Victoria basin (LVB) in East Africa can be considered a climate change hotspot because of its large rural population dependent on rain-fed farming. Drawing on extensive fieldwork (2007-2011) in rural communities along the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya and Tanzania, I explore adaptive capacities to climate variability and change and discuss how they interrelate in situ.
