Kariba Reservoir: Experience and Lessons Learned Brief (Lake Basin Management Initiative). 2005. (787 KB)

In post-World War II, Britain had large areas of influence in Africa, including southern Africa. Other than Portuguese East Africa (now Mozambique) and South West Africa (Namibia), the rest of southern Africa comprised a cluster of countries under British authority. Rather than implementing separate development agendas for each of its territories, Britain proposed a federal structure for the territories north of the Limpopo River. Under this arrangement, some facilities (e.g., secondary and tertiary education; key medical facilities) could be strategically developed under the federal umbrella, thereby avoiding duplicating facilities which the less developed protectorates of Nyasaland (Malawi) and Barotseland would likely be unable to sustain.
