Summary

The Zambezi river basin is the fourth largest river basin in Africa and drains a total of some 1350.000 square km. The basin drains eight countries: Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The river flows over the famous Victoria Falls into the third largest artificial lake in the world: Lake Kariba.  The Zambezi Basin is rich in natural resources and has a large hydro-power potential.  This volume contains 37 papers which have been published in international journals, or presented at international conferences by the Zambezi River Authority staff.  The topics covered include: Dam Safety, Rehabilitation and Maintenance, Environment and Health, Hydrology, Limnology, Information Systems, Water Resource Management, Hydropower Development and Socio-Economic Issues.
