WaterNet has been implementing a pilot project on the application of environmental flows in the Pungwe/Buzi/Save catchment areas in Mozambique and Zinbabwe. The pilot started in 2017 and will come to an end in November 2018. The main objective of the pilot is build human capacity in the two countries so that they able to work cooperatively in the determination and implementation of environmental flows in the three basins.
Both countries had teams which comprised of hydrologists, ecologists and social scientists who did field work within the Buzi basin. The fieldwork involved undertaking hydrological, ecological and social assessments needed to come up with a desired state of a river.
