Okavango River Management on World Water Day

Jump to last reply

Those of us who love the Okavango Delta, and those who don't know they do yet, might want to keep an eye on this story. I hope they can figure it out in a way that won't change the Delta too drastically. All three countries are correct in their priorities.

"WINDHOEK, Mar 11 (IPS) – Postwar Angola is keen to expand irrigation for much-needed development, Namibia is prioritising clean drinking water and sanitation, while Botswana wants to preserve the integrity of the world-renowned Okavango Delta for tourism.
All three depend on an equitable share of quality water from the Okavango River, the fourth largest in Africa, running 1,600 kilometres from Angola to its inland delta in Botswana."
