Objectif
The Project Development Objective is to advance preparation of the Batoka Gorge Hydro-Electric Scheme and strengthen cooperative development within the Zambezi River Basin.

Bénéficiaires
The long term benefits from development of the Batoka Gorge hydro-electric scheme will have regional benefits for enhanced energy security as well as stability within the SAPP. Given the shortage of installed capacity and predicted energy demands, improving regional energy security will make a substantial contribution to safeguarding economic gains and supporting further economic growth. At the local level, the mean energy production of the preferred option for the Batoka Gorge HES scheme is estimated to be sufficient to provide energy equivalent to 1,213,750 households. Considering an average of five people per household, the total beneficiaries from development of the Batoka Gorge HES would be in the order of 6,068,750 people
