Integrated Flow Assessment for the Kafue Flats Zambia: Phase 1 WATER RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT

Zambia’s Water Resources Management Act of 2011 brings into being a new Water Resources Management Authority (WARMA), paving the way for the nationwide formation of basin councils. These basin councils will be responsible for water resource management of particular basins (catchments).
