About Us

Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Counties Cooperation (LVRLACC) is a network organization of local authorities around Lake Victoria with its regional secretariat in Entebbe, Uganda. LVRLAC was founded in 1997 to coordinate and strengthen collaborative efforts by Local Authorities within the Lake Victoria Basin to sustainably harness the region's resources and promote the well being of the riparian communities.

LVRLACC is now one of the most dynamic and robust network of grassroots governments closest to the communities and a major developmental actor in the Lake Victoria basin. Learn more about our aims and goals.
