      The Basin of the Zambezi River covers the whole of Malawi, a major part of Zambia, large parts of Angola, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, and minor parts of Botswana, Namibia (Caprivi Strip) and Tanzania. Natural resources of the Basin are described, taking into account ecological, social and economic factors. These 3 factors are critical to achieving a state of sustainability in the Zambezi Basin. Zambia is drained by two major river basins: the Zambezi/Kafue basin in the centre, west and south covering about three-quarters of the country; and the Congo basin in the north covering about one-quarter of the country. A very small area in the northeast forms part of the internal drainage basin of Lake Rukwa in Tanzania.
