Case Study Areas
Lake Malombe Catchment Area, Malawi
The importance of the groundwater component to the water resource system
of the Rift valley.

The groundwater quantity contribution to surface water flow in the Rift valley.
Waste Water Management
The contribution of groundwater quality to the quality of surface water flow in Rift
valley and opportunities for using wastewater.
Key IWRM Objectives
The sustainable management specifically of ground water resources as a key component
to surface water flow providing for more sustainable livelihoods and economic development.
Pilot Area Focus
Rural, basin scale.
Key Research Objectives
- To determine the hydro-climatological processes of the catchment and expected trends under a changing environment.
- To assess key processes governing ground and surface water quality and their possible impacts on human health and lake productivity.
- To determine how effective the governance system is in managing the use of the natural resource.
