          The project belongs to the China-UN-Africa Joint Projects on Science and Technology Cooperation Action on Water Resources. It is established related with the joint project of Enhancing Capacity of Monitoring Water Resource of Lake Tanganyika conducted among Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Regional Office for Africa / UNEP, Lake Tanganyika Authority and the four riparian countries from 2008 to 2010, aiming at water resource and ecosystem protection in the typical states/basins in Africa. Technologies adapted to Africa will be studied, involving water monitoring, vegetation ecosystem monitoring and waste water treatment. The project tends to study the status quo of aquatic ecological pressure and sewage disposal, to diagnose and improve the urban sewage treatment plants in typical cities, to establish an Ecosystem Assessment Management system and a database management system for water monitoring, to develop pilot water monitoring laboratories and ecosystem monitoring sites with the support of local government, to demonstrate waste water treatment technologies, and to train the local technicians. It will be implemented by a group of Chinese institutes, including Nanjing institute of geography and limnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, The Institute of Botany of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Lanzhou University, Tongji University, China University of Geosciences (in Beijing). It concerns the areas of the Lake Tanganyika basin, the Lake Victoria Basin and the Nile River Basin. 

    The major contents of the project could be briefed as the following:

    (1) Research on the current situation of ecological pressure and sewage disposal in the selected basins;
    (2) Capacity building on water monitoring and a pilot project on regional environment monitoring in the Lake Tanganyika basin;
    (3) Techniques diagnosis and improvement of urban sewage treatment plants in typical cities;
    (4)Technological cooperation and demonstration on urban sewage disposal;
    (5) Ecosystem monitoring network planning and monitoring stations demonstration in typical regions;
    (6) Technological cooperation on sewage disposal and soil remediation of oil fields in Africa;
    (7) Training of local technicians.

    pre:Meeting On February 27 and 28, 2009
