Abstract in another language

The book inquires into the effectiveness of the regional and international environmental law frameworks that regulate co-operation in the Lake Victoria Basin. Such an inquiry is important in view of the incessant environmental malaises that afflict Lake Victoria and its Basin. The book shows that the legal frameworks and institutions responsible for effective management and trans-boundary co-operation in the Lake Victoria Basin are inchoate and anodyne in nature. This assessment leads to the conclusion that the solution to the problems in Lake Victoria and its Basin lies not in adopting more laws to regulate diverse trans-boundary aspects of the Lake Victoria Basin, but in initiating a strong political process to enhance the quality of extant laws and heighten the reach and bite of institutional implementation. The study underscores political will as an indispensable pathway to robust legal measures that are needed to drive effective trans-boundary resource co-operation in the Lake Victoria Basin.
Fledgling political will reinforced by statist concerns in the Lake Victoria Basin undermine effective co-operation and inhibit the EAC Partner States from investing in more ambitious environmental measures for effective trans-boundary resource management and co-operation. Taking into consideration the unique contextual peculiarities of the Lake Victoria Basin, the book offers useful co-operation lessons for the Lake Victoria Basin states from trans-boundary resource co-operation paradigms in the North Sea, the Baltic Sea and the Rhine River.
