Transboundary Agro-ecosystem Management Project for the Kagera River Basin (Kagera)


The Transboundary Agro-ecosystem Management Project for the Kagera River Basin (Kagera TAMP) was approved by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in June 2009.

The Project’s goal is to adopt an integrated ecosystems approach for the management of land resources in the Kagera Basin that will generate local, national and global benefits. The benefits include: restoration of degraded lands, carbon sequestration, climate change adaptation and mitigation, protection of international waters, agro-biodiversity conservation and sustainable use and improved agricultural production, leading to increased food security and improved rural livelihoods. The success of the project depends on working with actors at all levels and ensuring that a suitable institutional and policy framework is in place.
