The initiative aims to supporting participating governments to achieve the Millennium Development Goals for water supply and sanitation.
In most countries that have a coastline, getting fresh fish is not really a problem. But for landlocked nations like Uganda it can be a challenge. Luckily, Ugandans have Lake Victoria to get freshwater fish. Now, for the first time in the capital, Kampala, a restaurant is offering diners fresh fish they can pick from an aquarium. And you can't get fresher than that. Leon Ssenyange has more.

Ismael Asiimwe Mustapha, VoicesofAfrica mobile reporter in Kampala, Uganda (1 May 2011) Bwaise residents in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, will not forget the last week of April, when they powerlessly saw their houses and properties disappear under muddy waters. Drainage canals were simply not up to the task. All the people migrated to the nearby villages like Kawempe and Kazo. Other sought shelter in nearby churches and await humanitarian aid.

The rapid growth in rural to urban migration rates has not been matched by the rate of infrastructure developments. In several urban settlements where the poorest end up, lack of infrastructure to pipe water from clean sources means that communities pay exorbitant amounts of money for water, which is sometimes not suitable for consumption. This puts them at risk of contamination due to several factors for example. Bwaise II, a poor settlement on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda, used to resemble those settlements i.e. poor families in Bwaise II paid more than the wealthiest families in Uganda for their water, and as a result would often use contaminated springs for washing and laundry. RAIN Uganda was designed and constructed a prepaid water system to improve access to affordable , safe w...
