Topical Tuesdays- The Socioeconomic Effects of Toxic Algal Blooms In-Person
The library and the League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area welcome Dr. Kefa M. Otiso, Professor of Geography at Bowling Green State University, for a presentation on the socioeconomic effects of toxic algal blooms. In this ongoing research, Dr. Otiso is looking at the socioeconomic effects of HABs in Kenya’s Lake Victoria waters – though the research is also applicable to the Great Lakes region of North America. The area around Lake Victoria is one of the most densely populated rural regions in the world, with over 30 million people relying on the lake for food, transportation, power, and income from tourism. The growing presence of HABs in the Lake therefore threatens this drinking water and livelihood source for millions of people.
