Okavango River Basin Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis(TDA). 1998. (1.0 Mb)
OKACOM is an initiative of the three Okavango River Basin states, Angola, Botswana and Namibia. The
Commission has the functions of advising the respective governments on the sustainable development of the basin and of co-ordinating investigation and research activities.
A Preparatory Assistance Project funded by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) is nearing completion and
has had the aim of providing support for the implementation of a basin-wide Environmental Assessment, and the
development of an Integrated Basin Management Plan. The aims of the preparatory project include the execution of a Diagnostic Study of the Okavango River Basin in all three countries, in order that an outline Strategic Action
Programme and detailed GEF funding proposal can be drawn up.
In order to carry out the diagnostic study the inputs of a number of specialists were required in all three countries and their inputs have contributed in a major way to the compilation of this document, the “Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA)”.
This TDA has been divided in to two sections, Section A which describes the data available and an overview of the
subject and Section B which attempts to highlight data deficiencies and to outline work that is required in the
proposed Environmental Assessment. (p. 7)
