Lake Victoria: falling water levels

African Water Journalists Blog points to a report in the Ugandan daily – the Monitor – on the falling water level in Lake Victoria. The result is less fish, less domestic water and an increase in water borne diseases like bilharzia.

    I’m glad someone has posted something on this topic. It’s vastly important and should be in the public eye far more than it is. I’m actually doing a research paper on the subject of Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s water supply, including water-borne disease concerns and water wars stemming from water scarcity. My email is Please feel free to email me any information you happen to find on this subject and I, as well, will work on getting the word out and educating the public on what these concerns are as well as different ways to help solve them. Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you.
