Project Overview

The project promotes the sustainable, equitable and improved utilisation of water and other natural resources in ephemeral river basins in southern Africa through the process of integrated water resource management (IWRM). The ERB Project explores the potential and options for basin management in three ephemeral river basins in southern Africa – the Boteti, an outflow of the Okavango Delta, in Botswana, the Buffels, a westward-flowing ephemeral river in the Northern Cape, ...

The project promotes the sustainable, equitable and improved utilisation of water and other natural resources in ephemeral river basins in southern Africa through the process of integrated water resource management (IWRM). The ERB Project explores the potential and options for basin management in three ephemeral river basins in southern Africa – the Boteti, an outflow of the Okavango Delta, in Botswana, the Buffels, a westward-flowing ephemeral river in the Northern Cape, in South Africa and the Fish River Basin, a tributary of the Orange River, in Namibia. The purpose of the project is met by five main activities: -Sensitising managers and users of natural resources to the concepts of IWRM and basin management -Assessing the potential for the application of integrated basin management -Establishing appropriate forums for promoting IWRM in the three basins -Documenting the biophysical and socioeconomic status of the three basins -Documenting best practices, lessons learned, and case studies as a comparative analysis for a wider application.

Project Results
