The Okavango River Basin Steering Committee (OBSC)
Portia Segomelo chairs an extraordinary meeting of the OBSC to discuss the TDA and SAP in Johannesburg, April 2011.
The Okavango River Basin Steering Committee was established by OKACOM on 6 June 1995. It is a technical advisory body of the Commission and consists of permanent and non-permanent members. It is chaired by a Commissioner from the member state holding the Chair of the Commission at the time. This committee has proven instrumental in implementing the decisions of OKACOM at national level. The OBSC establishes task forces of technical specialists as needed to examine specific types of issue. Three task forces currently advise the Commission: the Institutional Task Force, the Biodiversity Task Force and the Hydrology Task Force.
