Project on engaging private sector for green growth in Lake Victoria Basin (EPSGG-LVB)
Engaging Private Sector for Green Growth in Lake Victoria Basin (EPSGG-LVB) Project is a regional project of LVBC implemented by the commission through the National Cleaner Production Centres of Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda and the ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism in the Republic of Burundi.
Project Development Objective (PDO): The project objective is to increase use of and investment in Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) technologies by private enterprises in the Lake Victoria Basin. Project implementation employs the approach of promoting RECP among targeted enterprises in the basin.
RECP: This is the continuous application of an integrated preventive environmental strategy to processes, products and services to enhance efficiency and reduce adverse human and environmental impacts.
Project Components: The project consists of three technical components and a coordination and management component. These are elaborated as follows.
Project Funding: EPSGG-LVB is financed through grants provided by Nordic Development Fund (NDF). The estimated project cost is 3.65 Million Euros. Of this amount, 3.2 million euros is for the Regional Executing Entity while 800,000 euros is allocated to the Bank Executed Trust Fund (BETF) to conduct implementation support and additional analysis. The table below provides a summary of funding allocation by component.
Project Partners and Implementation Arrangement: Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) is the grant recipient and coordinates the project regionally in line with the Protocol for Sustainable Development of LVB. The Commission also implements regional activities. LVBC sub-contracted the Kenya National Cleaner Production Centre (KNCPC) to coordinate the implementation of RECP technical activities regionally.
To effectively discharge this mandate, KNCPC signed implementation MoUs with the National Cleaner Production Centres of Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda as well as the Burundi Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production Programme (BRECPP) under the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism.
The Kenya National Cleaner Production Centre (KNCPC) implements the Kenya national activities and provides the regional technical lead role and coordinates activities with filial NCPCs in each of the five EAC Partner States that share the Lake Victoria Basin (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda).
