This workshop is the second workshop focusing on future water resources options and challenges in East Africa.
It is held as part of the Water Futures and Solutions project, funded by the Austrian Development Agency.
The workshop is hosted by IIASA and the Government of Uganda in collaboration with the Lake Victoria Basin Commission.
The first workshop was held in Entebbe, Uganda in December 2017 and focused on understanding future development scenarios and their implications for water management practices in the Lake Victoria Basin.
This second workshop will focus on the East Africa Future Water Scenarios to 2050 which have been developed as part of the project. It will also explore the findings and the results of the model runs based on the developed scenarios.
The workshop will host 40 - 50 practitioners and policy makers engaged in government, academia, business, and civil society from Uganda and the other member countries of the Lake Victoria Basin Commission.
A key aim of the workshop is to outline key messages to be captured in a policy brief to be written on the outcomes and learning of the project.

After the workshop,
The Government of Uganda in collaboration with IIASA, co-hosted a three-day stakeholder workshop in December 2017 in Entebbe, on the issue of projecting future water demand and water availability in the Lake Victoria basin. The workshop, attracted more than 50 practitioners engaged in government, academia, business, and civil society in the East African community, to discuss mid- to long-term water resource management options towards 2050. Applying systems thinking approaches, the workshop aimed at understanding future development scenarios and their implications for water management practices. The workshop started with sharing experiences on modelling initiatives in East Africa and efforts undertaken relevant for mid- to long-term water resources planning. One full day was dedicated to gaining a deeper understanding of development scenarios resulting from the East African community’s vision for 2050. Discussions focused on how water can support development aspirations as an enabler, and how water resources are likely to be adversely affected as a result thereof.
