Water and ecosystem resources in regional development balancing societal needs and wants and natural resources systems sustainability in international river basin systems

Objective

The gradual escalation of water scarcity and threats against natural capital in the Okavango River Basin are widely recognised as fundamental impediments to secure socio-economic development in the region. Mounting pressure from local national and international interest groups on finite, highly dynamic and vulnerable water and ecosystem resources is a reality. Through an inter-disciplinary design and through contacts with policy makers and training facilities, the project has capacity to strengthen contacts between various stakeholders and policy makers. Apart from ordinary publishing, results will be available on an interactive home page, developed for regional ownership. A system for ongoing dissemination, feedback and participation for local and national stakeholders will also be developed.
