The Cubango-Okavango River is one of the world’s most unique, near pristine free-flowing rivers and central to sustainable economic development within the arid landscapes of the basin. In 1994, Angola, Botswana, and Namibia established the Permanent Okavango River Basin Water Commission (OKACOM) to promote coordinated and sustainable water resources management while addressing the social and economic needs of the Member States.
The Multi-Sector Investment Opportunities Analysis (MSIOA) is part of a systematic strategy by OKACOM to assist the Member States to achieve socially just, economically prosperous, and environmentally healthy development of the Cubango-Okavango River Basin.

This Annual Report outlines how the Cooperation in International Waters in Africa (CIWA) program has built an outstanding platform of support for African countries as they seek to overcome complex political, financial, technical and logistical barriers that arise in mobilizing international waters for climate-resilient growth.
The Nile Story is one of immense challenges and remarkable achievements for the economic development of the region. It begins in 1999, when the ministers in charge of water affairs in the Nile countries agreed to form the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Between 2003 and 2015, the Nile Basin Trust Fund (NBTF) supported and coordinated cooperative work in the region, which has been delivered mainly through the NBI. This book, commissioned by the World Bank on the closure of the NBTF, captures some insights to this 15 year story, the role of the NBI, and how its many achievements have been made along the way.
