Tanzania and Uganda have signed an agreement to strengthen bilateral cooperation and improve protection of boundaries, official said on Thursday.

The agreement was signed in Tanzania’s north-western region of Kagera after a two-day meeting between officials from the two countries.

At the meeting were Tanzanian Permanent Secretary in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation Faraji Mnyepe and Alfred Ollot, permanent secretary responsible for foreign and East African Community affairs from Uganda.

Also present at the meeting were permanent secretaries from the ministries of livestock and fisheries, housing and settlement development, energy and water.

Major topics discussed at the conference included safeguarding the Tanzania/Uganda border and protection of Kagera River by ensuring sustainable land management in the Kagera Basin.

The Kagera Basin, which lies within four countries, namely Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania, is characterized by severe land degradation linked to loss of soil fertility caused by population pressure and primitive farming methods. Enditem
