White Nile River Basin Expedition – Lake Mburo

For the next 15 days NWNL will be investigating conservation and stewardship in the vulnerable White Nile River Basin. This month’s devastating mudslides in Uganda’s White Nile headwaters are said to be due to uncontrolled deforestation and settlement. The human impacts of these disasters range from no access to water, to water-related diseases, and conflicts over natural resource usage.
