| The „Symposium on the Impacts of Climate Change on Lake Victoria“ is being organised to gather and promote information on climate change initiatives being undertaken by African and non-African organisations and scientists undertaking projects and performing research on climate change in the Lake Victoria Basin.
The experiences from the event will be helpful in COP 24 to be held in Katowice, Poland on 3rd-14th December 2018. At that event, known as "faciltative dialigue", countries are expected to report on progresses since Paris. This Kampala event will provide a solid basis upon which experiences on climate change mitigation and adaptation on the Lake Victoria Basin can be documented and disseminated to a wide audience.
The event is not a public one, so participation will be by invitation. Persons and representatives from institutions who feel their work is relevant and an invitation should be sent to them, should contact the organising team with an abstract (see the details on abstracts submission on pages 6 and 7). It should be emphasised that the „Symposium on the Impacts of Climate Change on Lake Victoria“ is a self-funded event, and no support can be provided towards the travel or accommodation of delegates.
