Victoria Falls River Basin

For a new report assessing the environmental and socioeconomic conditions in 286 of the world’s transboundary river basins, SEDAC data were used in the calculation of several indicators: economic dependence on water resources, societal wellbeing levels, and the risk of climate-related hazards. The report is an outcome of the Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme, coordinated by the UNEP-DHI (Danish Hydrological Institute) Center on Waste and Environment in execution with international partners, for the Global Environmental Facility, with the aim of creating a baseline assessment of all transboundary water resources on Earth.
