The Kagera River Basin area comprising parts of Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda is a region with great potentials for agricultural and livestock development. Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis have been the major constraints to realising the full potential of these resources. During the preparatory phase of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) funded-Trypanosomiasis control in the Kagera Basin and executed by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) with technical input from the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE); information was gathered on the extent of tsetse and trypanosomiasis problem in the basin. The status of the problem was validated through surveys carried by the national teams (of the respective member states) dealing with tsetse control in the basin area. A map of the current tsetse and trypanosomiasis situation was produced.
