In this project, ICRAF will assist in providing advice and training on sustainable catchment management and sediment control in the Lake Tanganyika catchment basin, in the framework of UNDP/GEF project on Partnership Interventions for Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme for Lake Tanganyika (SAP).Specifically, ICRAF will contribute towards the acheivement of Outcome 3 of the SAP for Lake Tanganyika: Sediment discharge reduced from demonstration catchment management sites, providing significant livelihood benefits to local people, and seeking long-term adaptation measures to changing climatic regimes.Through a participatory process with focus on local communities, ICRAF will provide support for the following activities.1. Contributing to the development of best practice demonstrations sites within national focal areas and providing advisory inputs for best practice in catchment management.2. Organizing and delivering short training courses and strengthening capacity on sustainable land/catchment management.3. Linking catchment management to erosion/sediment monitoring.4. Offering advice on mitigation of climate change impacts.5. Documenting and disseminating best practice within regional newsletters, brochures, and bulletins.
