International Waters in Southern Africa


Description

Southern Africa is one of the world's most critical regions in terms of the management of shared water resources. This is due to a number of factors including: the large disparity in the availability of water between the relatively wet northern part of the region and the drier south; and the fact that the first transboundary transfer of water occurred in this region, between Lesotho and South Africa. This book examines both the risks and opportunities for water management in the new political environment in the region. Issues discussed include: the role of public participation, transboundary freshwater treaties; institutional aspects of international water system management; and hydropolitics.
