This booklet aims to create more widespread understanding of the planet's catchments: how they work, what harms them and how to protect them. It was created after numerous communities and groups asked International Rivers Network's Southern Africa staff for more information about catchments, to help them understand the complex issues about large dams and water transfer projects Â and alternatives to them.
