Monash South Africa partners with WWF-Zambia

Settlement in the Kafue Basin

Monash South Africa and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) have agreed to work together on a water quality security case study in the Kafue Basin of Zambia. This followed a meeting between Dr. Nyambe Nyambe, who is the interim Country Director of WWF Zambia, and Associate Prof. Bimo Nkhata from Monash South Africa, who is also the designated project manager of the International Water Security Network in Africa. The meeting took place in early February at the offices of WWF-Zambia in Lusaka, Zambia. Amongst other things, the two representatives agreed to collaborate in establishing a water security consultative group in the Kafue Basin that will work closely with the research team that will be conducting the water quality security case study. The case study is one of the research initiatives being implemented by Monash South Africa as part of the International Water Security Network.
