 The Abundance and Distribution of Water Hyacinth in Lake Victoria and the Kagera River Basin, 1989-2001: Summary Report
This region near the Kagera River at the border between Tanzania and Rwanda contains a large number of small to medium sized lakes.
In general, those lakes that are close to and/or connected to the Kagera River are more likely to have experienced water hyacinth invasion than those that are farther away and/or not connected.
We suspect that the large reduction in water hyacinth that occurred between 1997 and 1999 was due, at least in part, to flood waters associated with the El Niño event breaching the blocked outlet of Lake Mihindi allowing water hyacinth to spill out of the lake and into the river system.

 Biological Control of Water Hyacinth in the Kagera River Headwaters of Rwanda
The implementation of the biological control program within the Kagera River system of Rwanda is expected to further support the long-term control of water hyacinth in the Lake Victoria basin via the reduction of water hyacinth biomass in source waters.
Considering that all rivers contain two riverbanks, these 160 km of river, therefore, produce 320 km of linear shoreline growth potential for the weed to a width of approximately two meters, or a total of about 64 ha.

 The Economic Impact of Fatal Adult Illness from AIDS and Other Causes in Sub-Saharan Africa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
For example, when prime-aged women die, malnutrition increases among their orphaned daughters under age three, and the schooling of older children is sacrificed.
Third, adult mortality from AIDS and other causes is only one among many roots of poverty and low living standards in Kagera, and it is not the most important one.
Since analysis of the Kagera survey data shows that per capita consumption in the better-off households is not depressed by an adult death, and many poor households have had no adult death, the project results do not support the idea of targeting assistance to all Kagera households that have suffered an adult death.
