Navigating the Network: Stakeholder Mapping in Support of Investment Planning in the Cubango-Okavango River Basin

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.

Application of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol in the Zambezi River Basin

The objective of the technical assistance program on the “Application of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol in the Zambezi River Basin” was to assist the Riparian States in development and utilization of the hydropower potential of the basin in a sustainable and responsible way. The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol is a methodology for measuring sustainability of hydropower projects across a range of more than 20 environmental, social, technical, and business topics. The program sought to promote the development and use of the Protocol as a guiding framework for sustainability that can help balance mutual dependencies among different water users across the basin. This was implemented in collaboration with the members of Zambezi River Basin Water Resources Managers and Dam Operators (ZAMDO) and in coordination with the Zambezi Watercourse Commission as part of a broader program of support in the basin.

Batoka Gorge Hydro Electricity Scheme. A Macroeconomic Assessment of Public Investment Options (MAPIO)

Maximizing the benefits from investment in hydropower requires a clear, predictable, and transparent process informed by robust analyses that can facilitate a multicriteria consideration of the range of options and alternatives that may be available. The upstream tools available to governments to assess the costs and benefits of different investment strategies are often too general or specific to determine the optimal investment strategy. This paper outlines a simple model to assess the returns of a potential investment program in the hydropower sector. The Macroeconomic Assessment of Public Investment Options
(MAPIO) model provides an analysis of impacts on key macroeconomic variables, such as exports, imports, gross domestic product (GDP), prices, and fiscal accounts.
