Sustainable catchment management through enhanced Environmental Flow Assessment and Implementation in Tanzania

Water is essential to all kinds of human development and livelihood support systems, including ecosystems management, and sustains both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. However, water resources are now under pressure due to increased competing demands and global warming, which have led to complex water management challenges.

Environmental Flows for enhanced biodiversity and poverty alleviation in the Incomati delta, Mozambique (EFlows-Moz)

Project Summary:

Over the past 15 years, economic growth in several areas in Mozambique has been increasingly relying on the extractive sector with minimal translation of such growth to an equivalent increase in living standards. Most of the rural population thus remains highly dependent on natural resources and their associated ecosystem services for which rainfall and river flows are key drivers.
