The strong growth and concentration of populations in the Lake and in its zone of affluence (13.3 million in 2013 and a projection of 18.3 million in 2025), has exacerbated the pressure on the natural resources whose exploitation generates reoccurring serious social conflicts The gravity of the situation requires a regional intervention approach of which for the rehabilitation and reinforcement of resilience of socio-ecological systems would constitute a stage of rapid and visible impact.
