Floating Vegetation

Kenya is facing a number of serious challenges related to water resource management which include growing population, water scarcity, climate variability and water resource degradation, invasive species, water pollution.

The proliferation of invasive plants and animal species in the region, including fish species and aquatic weeds, is of growing concern.

In particular, some of the problems caused by aquatic weeds are herewith reported:
  • interfere with human activities such as fishing, and boating;
  • stunt or interfere with a balanced fish population;
  • fish kills due to removal of too much oxygen from the water;
  • produce quiet water areas that are ideal for mosquito breeding; and
  • impede water flow in drainage ditches, irrigation canals, and culverts, causing water to back up.
