This document is an output of LoGo Water, a research project aimed at improving the capacity of Local Governments to implement Integrated Water Resources Management
(IWRM), thus contributing to the achievement of water-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). One of the objectives of the LoGo Water project is to identify good practices and experiences of IWRM at the basin scale, and investigate the role currently played by Local Governments in these good practices. The Logo Water project focuses specifically on contrasting these experiences from some European basins with the goal of helping achieve IWRM in the Limpopo river basin in Southern Africa. This is a key basin in the Southern African Development Community (SADC), involving Botswana, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique. As in all parts of the world, water resources are part of the hydrological cycle, a finite system on which we all depend.[authors abstract]

This document is part of the project ‘LoGo Water : towards effective involvement of local government in Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in river basins of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region’.
