The Lake Victoria Basin Eco-region Research Programme (LVBERP) is mandated to undertake forestry research mainly within the Lake Victoria Basin. The eco-region is unique in natural resource endowment, economic and political conditions. Of particular importance in forestry research is the unique history, forest resources and culture of the people of the Lake Basin and the requirements for management of the forest types and allied natural resources.
LVBERP implements its research and development activities through four thematic areas namely: Forest Productivity and Improvement; Biodiversity and Environment Management; Socio-economics, Policy and Governance; and Technical Support Services.
LVBERP headquarters is situated in Maseno, 32 km north-west of Kisumu, off the Kisumu- Busia Highway after Maseno University. The eco-region research programme sub-centres are located in Kakamega, Kuja River, Ramogi and Migori.
LVBERP covers 10 counties namely; Kisumu, Kakamega, Bungoma, Busia, Siaya, Vihiga, Homabay, Nyamira, Kisii and Migori.
