UN-Habitat’s Urban Planning Initiative in the Lake Victoria region was born out of the need to provide appropriate spatial frameworks for physical interventions being undertaken by a number of secondary towns in the Lake Victoria region. Its goal is to increase environmental sustainability whilst reducing poverty, but the obstacles are formidable: many of these towns have growth rates between three and seven per cent per annum, and the incapacity of their respective local authorities to manage solid and liquid waste already make them primary polluters of Lake Victoria. This endangers some 25 million people who depend on the Lake’s resources.
