Member States meet to agree on a set of transboundary priorities for the Basin

The Basin-Wide Consultative Workshop for the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) for the Limpopo River Basin is currently underway in Pretoria, South Africa.


This follows the successful hosting of National Consultative Workshops in the four Limpopo Member States – Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe — in March and April 2024, where individual countries identified transboundary problems in the basin, as well as prioritize the problems that should be resolved to improve and conserve the basin’s resources and ecosystems.


The Basin-Wide Consultative Workshop set for 14-16 May 2024 in South Africa is thus bringing together all four countries and various other national and regional stakeholders to allow all the countries to collectively contribute to the development of the Limpopo River Basin.


Through the Limpopo TDA, Member States will agree on a set of transboundary priorities for the basin, which will guide transboundary and national investments in the future. The process also provides a factual basis for the formulation of the Strategic Action Plan (SAP) for the Limpopo River Basin, which will be negotiated and agreed upon by the LIMCOM Member States.


Development of TDA/SAP is being supported under the “Integrated Transboundary River Basin Management for the Sustainable Development of the Limpopo River Basin.”


LIMCOM is implementing the project in partnership with the Global Water Partnership Southern Africa (GWPSA), with support from the UNDP South Africa (UNDP), through the Global Environment Facility (GEF).


The project aims to uplift the living standards of the basin’s population and conserve the basin’s resources and ecosystem services, through several interventions to be executed at the community level.
