The objectives of the workshop are to initiate awareness among fishing communities on the issues of sustainable use of living and non-living resources of Lake Tanganyika, and refine the analysis of the impact of the fishing business management of these resources. The other objective is to produce videos of short stories in four languages on key issues related to the management and conservation of Lake Tanganyika. The videos will be used to educate people about the dangers of unsustainable practices and promote the use of best practices.

"From this 23 rd to 24 th August, 2012, you will be involved to how you can control species that have become invasive and be trained how you can prevent new invasions in order to develop a Monitoring Programme for Invasive Species for the four riparian countries of Lake Tanganyika” said Mr. Gabriel Hakizimana, Director of Environment of Lake Tanganyika Authority – LTA.
Possible effects of global climate change on the ecosystem of Lake Tanganyika
Any change in the air temperature, wind speed, precipitation, and incoming solar radiation induced by increasing greenhouse gasses and climate change will directly influence lakes and other water bodies. The effects of a slight increase in lake water temperature on the Lake Tanganyika ecosystem might be mitigated by increased windiness, if the latter was sufficient to induce greater mixing.
Optimized extraction of daily bio-optical time series derived from MODIS/Aqua imagery for Lake Tanganyika, Africa
Standard MODIS Aqua Ocean Color products were found to not provide a suitable calibration for high altitude lakes such as the Lake Tanganyika . Our results show that for the geographical, atmospheric and optical conditions of Lake Tanganyika : (i) a coastal aerosol model set with high relative humidity (90%) provides a suitable atmospheric correction;
