Droneports in Lake Victoria: Mobility Solution in East Africa

Aerial Futures

East Africa’s Lake Victoria basin, home to 35 million people, is the most densely populated rural area in the world. Yet the prohibitive cost of road and rail transport impedes mobility, meaning that cargo, medicine and blood packs often cannot reach those who need them most. Drones are providing an affordable, sustainable and life-saving mobility solution for the region, which is why AERIAL FUTURES has joined forces with the Lake Victoria Challenge, a World Bank initiative, to examine the potential for drones and their associated architecture in Tanzania.
