Description:

Managing water scarcity in southern Africa: Policy and strategies.

Summary / Notes:

This chapter reviews Southern Africa region's efforts to combat water scarcity including enacted water policies, agreements and strategies (such as interbasin water transfers) put in place to guide the Member States in combating the challenges arising from water scarcity that is affecting a large portion of the region. Unequal distribution and rainfall variability and unreliability compounds an already bad situation because while in other parts of the region there is seasonal water abundance, in other parts there is perpetual deficit. The regional organ (SADC) was formed with the primary objective of integration and cooperation among member countries with water considered as a critical factor to the integrated and cooperative socio-economic development of the region. The coordinated, sustainable and integrated development and management of the region's water resources is expected to contribute to the region's goal of attaining an integrated regional economy built on the basis of balance, equity and mutual benefit for all member states. Water management particularly supports the SADC objectives of poverty reduction, food security, energy security and industrial development, as well as being an instrument to promote peace and cooperation amongst the partners. Keywords: Rainfall variability, integrated water resource management, transboundary watercourse systems, inter-basin water transfers, legal and non legal water instruments, SADC water protocol, SADC regional water policy, SADC regional water strategy.
