LEICESTER, UNITED KINGDOM — The University of Leicester is a leading UK university committed to international excellence through the creation of world changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching within an inclusive academic culture. Project staff will establish the current status of ecological and hydrological indicators for Lake Turkana and compare this with historical data where available. Data and information from project activities will form the basis of an ecological monitoring plan which tracks the impacts of development activities such as dam construction, irrigation projects and oil production and exploration on the hydrology and ecology of Lake Turkana and associated wetlands.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded University of Leicester $225,000 between 2003 and 2014.
