Description

The Okavango River system is one of the world’s great natural treasures. Rising in Angola, it flows south & then east between Angola and Namibia terminating in Botswana. Waters never reach the sea, instead spread across Kalahari sands in Botswana to form a wetland of global importance, the Okavango Delta. Dr Jackie King is a freshwater ecologist who has led scientific teams advising the three Okavango countries over the last decade. She will show the nature of the system,the work being done to help the countries follow a pathway of careful sustainable development.
