Environmental Protection and Sustainable Management of the Okavango River Basin Project (EPSMO)
The Global Environment Facility, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations worked together to enable completion of a Trans-boundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA), and to formulate a Strategic Action programme (SAP) for OKACOM. The project set the stage for long term investment activities to protect the ecological integrity of the basin.
- The EPSMO Project
The EPSMO Project was funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on behalf of GEF, in support of OKACOM. The project was executed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). The objective of the project was to prepare a transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) of hydro-environmental threats and to formulate a strategic action program (SAP) to facilitate joint management of the water resources of the Okavango River Basin and the protection of its linked aquatic ecosystems and biological diversity. The project was closed in 2010: you can find more about it on the EPSMO project website.
