Strategy for flood management for Kafue river basin, Zambia

Source(s):  Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM)

This document illustrates the application to the Kafue river basin of the "Strategy for flood management", a tool which brings to the fore the proactive and integrated ways of managing floods for the sustainable development of our flood plains. The Strategy has been developed at an appropriate time when the Zambian people’s memories are still fresh with images of devastating and destructive floods that destroyed both human life and infrastructure in the 2005/6 rainy season. In developing this Strategy, a balanced view was taken that took on board all interests of key stakeholders such that during implementation people’s livelihoods would be improved and this would culminate into accelerated attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Zambia, and in particular among the flood plain communities in surrounding urban and periurban areas.
