Project description
Complementing the RESILIM project, RESILIM-Olifants will increase resiliency in the Olifants Catchment of the Limpopo River Basin. The Olifants, which stretches from South Africa to Mozambique, is the largest contributor to water flows in the Limpopo River Basin and is home to significant protected areas, including Kruger National Park. RESILIM-Olifants supports broader, basin-wide work implemented by Chemonics International. Led by AWARD, the project will work through a consortium of partners in South Africa and Mozambique to improve transboundary governance and management of the Olifants Catchment. The project will build resiliency of the catchment’s people and ecosystems to environmental change through systemic and participatory approaches. In conjunction with the RESILIM project currently being undertaken in the larger Limpopo River Basin, USAID will specifically focus on evidence-based learning to develop approaches and tools that are applicable throughout the Limpopo.
