Fig. 1. The Lake Victoria basin countries include Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Burundi. Armed conflict events have occurred throughout the basin. Data points represent estimated deaths from individual battles or changes of territory in an armed conflict between one of the national governments of the respective countries and an armed, organized insurgent group (1997-2010). Data are from the Uppsala Conflict Data Project’s Georeferenced Event Dataset (Sundberg and Melander 2013).
