Information Sessions in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda
VicInAqua partners will address the local population to raise awareness on the environmental impact of improved sanitation, aquaculture and fisheries in form of comprehensive information campaigns. When possible, the information sessions in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda will be connected to Study Visits with training sessions on site.
- Uganda (19 November 2018 in Entebbe, Uganda): Partner NARO (National Agricultural Research Organization, Uganda) will organise our third information session in Uganda - "The environmental impact of improved sanitation, aquaculture and fisheries". The session takes place in the frame of several VicInAqua community events in Uganda: MBR training, Round tables on Gender & Aquaculture / Water Management & Policy, and Study Visits (MBR site in a fish processing plant in Ntinda, Kampala; followed by a RAS - recirculating aquaculture system - site for live fish marketing in Naguru, Kampala).
