First Year CRAG Annual Report. ” Enhancing Climate Change Resilience in GreatLakes Region Watersheds: the Lake Kivu Catchment and Rusizi River CRAG

The Climate Resilience Altitudinal Gradient (CRAG) project emerged from a workshop in Entebbe that helped to develop the 2012 MacArthur-funded Conservation Strategy for the Great Lakes Region (GLR) of East and Central Africa, in which the Lake Kivu and Rusizi River catchments were identified as a potential site5. It is in this regard that, BirdLife International have got from MacArthur Foundation, a fund for implementing the Project titled “Enhancing Climate Change Resilience in Great Lakes Region Watersheds: the Lake Kivu Catchment and Rusizi River CRAG”

The Southern Kivu catchments feed directly into the Rusizi River which is one of the three largest rivers emptying into Lake Tanganyika (supplying around 30% of its total freshwater inflow (Vandelannoote et al. 1999). The project is actually focusing on the Rusizi and South Kivu catchments for Lakes Kivu and Tanganyika Security considerations preclude working throughout the entire catchments of Lake Kivu, soit will be expended in south of the northern boundary. The Central and Northern catchments of Lake Kivu should be addressed at a later date if the security situation improves, following the CRAG model that is applied here.
