Inter-Sectoral Governance in Inland Fisheries: Lake Victoria

Fiona Nunan, Paul Onyango

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


The diverse uses of Lake Victoria, East Africa, and the scale of the lake, bordered by three countries and covering 68,000 km2, mean that many government sectors and non-governmental actors are involved in the governance of the lake and impact on the fisheries. Inter-sectoral interaction happens at all levels but is not always frequent or well-coordinated – it may depend on the availability of funds and willingness of government officers and other actors to interact and work together. Examples of conflict and cooperation within and beyond the fisheries sector are provided, leading to the identification of opportunities to further and deepen collaboration between sectors.
