Country Water Resource Profile Zambia

DOWNLOAD :

In recent years, Zambia has observed intensifying competition for water resources by agricultural, industrial, and domestic users which will continue to put mounting pressure on water resources. There are numerous causes for this situation; (i) the country not being able to challenge its scientists to solve some water-related developmental issues, and (ii) research not receiving adequate attention, which has led to policy and decision-making remaining uninformed. Further, the report identifies several research and development gaps in the water sector, which must be addressed in order „to ensure that every Zambian has fair access to the resource and related services regardless of their economic and social status‟.
