About this book

The book constitutes a pioneering and unique work on Lake Victoria. It is the world's second largest fresh-water lake and has existed for over 35,000 years, supporting the livelihood of more than 30 million people. Surprisingly, there has been no comprehensive book that addresses its problems and potentials. Ecology, environmental pollution, resource management, etc., are some of the issues that are addressed by the authors. This book presents comprehensive insights into the limitations, challenges and opportunities facing Lake Victoria. Students, researchers, and practitioners from various fields will find it useful.
