White Nile River Basin Expedition – Entebbe 3/27

This morning I will begin NWNL’s focus on the impacts of disease, human settlement and infrastructure here at the source of the Nile. Watershed issues NWNL is studying here include: The headwaters face deforestation, dams and increasing settlement; pollution and invasive species threaten the livelihoods of 30 million lakeshore inhabitants; and increases in floods and droughts are greatly impacting this watershed.
