Lower Kafue River Basin Report Card Development

Lower Kafue River Basin Report Card Development

This project is a continuation of the partnership between The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences to develop a standardized methodology for designing and implementing report cards that assess the health some of the world’s most prominent freshwater basins. UMCES and the WWF are currently collaborating with Zambian stakeholders to create a report card for the Lower Kafue River Basin. Through the creation of this specific report card, WWF and UMCES hope to: 1.) Train WWF-Zambia staff on the report car process; 2.) leverage action to ensure the health of the Lower Kafue River Basin; and 3.) increase awareness of the significance of freshwater systems to the livelihood and public health of Zambian citizens.
