The Lake Victoria Environment Management Project Phase Two (LVEMP II-Kenya), has been challenged to put more emphasis in ensuring the environmental conservation of the Lake Victoria basin.

Speaking when he officiated at the 15th National Policy Steering Committee of LVEMP II – Kenya, at the Tom Mboya Labour College, Kisumu, the Principal Secretary in the State Department of Environment, Mr. Charles Sunkuli noted that, Lake Victoria Basin is an important and strategic economic zone for the Country and cautioned that, the growing population in the Basin has a right to a clean and healthy environment as enshrined in the Constitution and Vision 2030.

To ensure proper coordination, implementation, better performance and continuity of the Project investments, the PS directed the co-opting of the County Government teams from the Project catchments.

Mr. Sunkuli emphasized the focus of the National Government in enforcing Waste Management regulations, and urged the Project to ensure that proper mechanisms are put in place to ensure efficient management of the Sewerage facilities by the respective County Governments. He at the same time emphasized the role of Community Driven Development Sub Projects as effective tool and key foundation in preventing pollution of the lake. He therefore, called on the Project to ensure effective implementation of its interventions to prevent Lake Pollution and involve the County Governments.

The National Policy Steering Committee is composed of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources which is also the National Focal Point Ministry for the Project, The National Treasury, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; Ministry of East African Affairs, Commerce and Tourism, Ministry of Water and Irrigation and Ministry of Devolution and Planning.
