The Okavango/Kubango Basin remains one of the least impacted and most spectacular basins on the African continent. This presents an enormous opportunity for the three riparian countries, Angolan, Namibia, and Botswana, to respond to mounting socio-economic pressures that threaten to change the basin's present character by developing an integrated management plan to ensure the sustainable future of this unique basin and its associated ecosystems.
The Sharing Water Project was designed to:
1▫.Help promote the long-term sustainable management of the Okavango/Kubango River;
2▫ Develop and test a consensus building, decision-making model and a data management system that help to further the OKACOM planning process;
3▫ Broaden stakeholder participation in the OKACOM planning process; and
4▫ Build capacity in the region to analyze complex scenarios and to work towards a consensus decision.
