The PREPARED programme was a 5-year USAID funded programme aimed at strengthening the resilience and sustainability of East African economies, transboundary freshwater ecosystems and communities in Lake Victoria Basin (LVB). LTS Africa worked with other partners using its regional knowledge and decades of experience to provide targeted support in biodiversity conservation between February 2013 and March 2018.
The LVB contains globally, regionally, or nationally significant concentrations of biodiversity that is threatened by (i) habitat loss; (ii) unsustainable harvesting; (iii) pollution; (iv) alien invasive species, and; (v) environmental change.
To counteract these threats, PREPARED developed and implemented a regional cross-sectoral and landscape scale approach that enhanced the resilience of this transboundary freshwater ecosystem to cope with increasing risk of uncertainty.
