Summary. The Zambezi river is the fourth longest in Africa, crossing or bordering Zambia, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The river basin is widely recognised as one of the most important basins in southern Africa and is the focus of contested development, including water for hydropower and for agriculture and the environment.

This book provides a thorough review of water and sustainable development in the Zambezi, in order to identify critical issues and propose constructive ways forward.

The book first reviews the availability and use of water resources in the basin, outlines the basin’s economic potential and highlights key concerns related to climate. Committed to advancing agroforestry as a way to enhance the nation's economy as well as its agricultural landscapes, watersheds, and communities, USDA has released the USDA Agroforestry Strategic Framework (PDF, KB), fiscal years The Framework provides a roadmap for advancing agroforestry through the following three goals, which are reinforced in the USDA Policy for Agroforestry.
