The Latawama project and the Tanzanian Fisheries Research Institute (TAFIRI) conducted, in April 2022, an identification and feasibility mission to establish a new research environmental monitoring centre in the southern part of Lake Tanganyika.
The LATAWAMA project, in collaboration with the Uvira municipality, launched awareness-raising and solid waste collection activities on 19 and 20 April. This initiative is part of the LATAWAMA project implemented by the Belgian development agency Enabel and the Lake Tanganyika Authority with funding from the European Union
Digitizing the wastewater collection network was entrusted to the SHER consultancy firm (Namur, Belgium). This mission includes the inventory and an evaluation of the physical state of the current network, involving archival research and fieldwork. A complete asset database and a GIS application will be developed to provide OBUHA with the means to significantly improve the management of the network's assets, with priority given to its maintenance and rehabilitation.
On 11 February 2022, the Latawama project team proceeded to the official launch of the sanitation works of the Uvira prison in collaboration with MONUSCO. Ceremonies were held with the deputy mayor of the city of Uvira. The Latawama project will equip the different common cells with toilets and proceed with the rehabilitation of the external toilets and the construction of new showers
