State of the Environment in the Zambezi Basin 2000

edited by Munyaradzi Chenje

This study marks the first time that an assessment of a single ecosystem has been undertaken and reported upon in Southern Africa. Handsomely produced and illustrated, it looks at the shared resources of the Zambezi basin, taking into account ecological, social, and economic issues. These three factors are critical to achieving a state of sustainability in the Zambezi Basin. The basin has been described as the focal point in Southern Africa in terms of energy, wildlife, biodiversity, wetlands and water resources, conservation, pollution concerns and tourism. Many countries stand to lose a great deal if it is not managed. Sustainable management of the basin is therefore crucial not only to the basin states but to the rest of the SADC as well. The study is a joint enterprise between SADC, the World Conservation Union, Zambezi River Authority, the Southern African Research and Documentation Centre, and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
