Prescribed Flooding and Restoration Potential in the Zambezi Delta, Mozambique




The past century of water resource development on the Zambezi River has resulted in significant adverse changes in the hydrological regime of the Zambezi Delta. The socio-economic and ecological consequences of these changes have been widespread and severe. The productivity of flood recession agriculture, fisheries, and grazing lands has declined. Widespread invasion of woody species into the delta grasslands, retrogression of coastal mangroves, displacement of wetland vegetation by less palatable upland bunchgrass species, and terrestrialization of abandoned waterways are evident. The process and patterns of change suggest that conditions will continue to deteriorate unless key indicators of hydrological change can be improved. Efforts
