Evaluation of co-operation project between Union of Baltic Cities (UBC) and Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Co-operation (LVRLAC), Inception Phase, 2004-2006
Sida has made a long-term commitment to support the sustainable development of the Lake Victoria region. One of the activities supported by Sida is to establish and develop a co-operation network for the local authorities in the Lake Victoria Basin. LVRLAC is a network organisation founded by the local authorities in the Basin in 1997.
Sida has provided funding since 2000 to enable LVRLAC to develop as an organisation, mainly through co-operation with UBC. UBC is a network organisation for cities around the Baltic Sea that has a unique experience of city to city co-operation in a catchment area, within sectors such as institutional development, cultural exchange, environment and more.
The objective has been to develop LVRLAC into an effective and active regional organisation for promoting sustainable development at the local level.
