Lake Victoria component planning meeting 13-14 Nov 200. Workshop report

The WorldFish Center and FAO are implementing a regional programme entitled "Fisheries and HIV/AIDS in Africa; investing in sustainable solutions", funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In Uganda, the Department of Fisheries Resources will provide the institutional support. Considering its role of overseeing the mainstreaming of HIV/AIDS, the Uganda AIDS Commission (UAC) will play a key role in the national coordination of the project. The responsibility of the Lake Victoria Fisheries Organisation (LVFO) will be to ensure that stakeholders from around the Lake actively participate in the discussions and that the recommendations arising from the project are of regional significance. The workshop objectives are to: 1) Create a shared understanding of programme objectives and processes 2) Develop an understanding of the technical programme focus and approaches (value chain, gender, pilot project, action research) 3) Agree on national programme outputs and targets, building on contributions by components, partners 4) Develop work plans and budget for the national component
