Scaling up on Protection of International Waters – Zambezi River
Scaling up on Protection of International Waters – Zambezi River
Objective: To protect Zambezi River – International Waters from Human negative activities through building capacities to the local communities along the River Banks.
As well known, Zambezi River is the only international water body found in North Western Province, whose source starts from Mwinilunga/Inkelenge and passes through Chavuma and Zambezi Districts. Currently, it has been observed that the river loses up its water at much quicker pace than before at some places thus making it difficult to travel by water, while the Victoria Falls receives little water. The echo system has also changed. Siltation has also been observed that a huge amount of sand has collected on the banks of the river, thus narrowing its size. The following issues have been identified as possible threats:
• Land degradation due to Brick Molding and Over Grazing along the river Bank
• Pollution of water
• Deforestation
• Mining (Sand and Minerals)
