Makerere University was selected to be the legal representative and research lead in this project for its wide experience in wetlands and ecosystems management. The university has a history of experience and projects conducted in this field and a group of expert researchers who can contribute in the project and can transfer their knowledge to other local and regional partners.

Makerere University: Established in 1922 as a humble technical school, Makerere University
is one of the oldest and most prestigious Universities in Africa.
The College soon began offering various other courses in Medical Care, Agriculture, Veterinary Sciences and Teacher Training. It expanded over the years to become a Center for Higher Education in East Africa in 1935. In 1937, the College started developing into an institution of higher education, offering post-school certificate courses. http://mak.ac.ug/
The university vision is to be the leading institution for academic excellence and innovations in Africa. With the mission to provide innovative teaching, learning, research and services responsive to National and Global needs. On July 1, 1970, Makerere became an independent national university of the Republic of Uganda, offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to its own awards. Makerere University offers not only day but also evening and external study programmes to a student body of about 35,000 undergraduates and 3,000 postgraduates (both Ugandan and foreign). It is also a very active centre for research.
The University transitioned from the Faculty-based to the collegiate system on 1st July 2011 and as of Friday 30th December 2011, Makerere University officially transformed into a Collegiate University with 9 Constituent Colleges and one School, operating as simultaneous units of the University.
The project is funded by and is part of
WLE Nile and East Africa
Regional programme.
