Through a combination of ground photographs, current and historical satellite images, and narrative based on extensive scientific evidence, this publication illustrates how humans have altered their surroundings and continue to make observable and measurable changes to the Africa's lakes and its environment. The publication underscores the importance of developing, harnessing and sharing technologies that help provide deeper understanding of the dynamics of Africa's lakes change. It serves as a reminder that Africa's lakes are a source of livelihoods for many African communities, and contribute significantly to socio-economic development of the continent, and that sound policy decisions and positive actions by societies and individuals are needed to sustain the Africa's lakes and the well-being of its inhabitants.--Publisher's description.
