Action on climate change to advance sustainable development in the Zambezi Basin
Climate change is one of the most important and complex challenges facing the Zambezi River Basin, much as in the rest of the world. Projected changes in the earth's climate present more than just an environmental concern but also serious social and economic implications. While the riparian states of the Zambezi River Basin bear little responsibility for the build-up of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases in the earth's atmosphere, they stand to bear the brunt of the environmental, social and economic consequences of a warming climate. Southern Africa – in which the Zambezi Basin wholly lies – has been identified as one of the regions around the world most susceptible to the impacts of climate change.
