There are no less than 15 shared river basins in Southern Africa (see Table 7.1). Being one of the largest rivers in Southern Africa and passing through eight countries, the Zambezi provides an intriguing case study of the political economy of shared river basins. The Zambezi river basin is not only the basis for the daily survival of millions of people, it is also the core of hydroelectric power production, mining industry, agriculture, fishery, urban development and tourism.
