Ripples from the Zambezi
Author: Ernesto Sirolli
Publisher: New Society Publishers
After six years of economic development work in Africa, Ernesto Sirolli witnessed how little most foreign aid programs were actually doing for the people they hoped to help-from creating a communal tomato field on the banks of the Zambezi river (only to be demolished by the river's hippos at harvest time) to donating snow-plows to African nations! However well intentioned, Sirolli points out, inappropriate development often creates more problems than it solves. Thus was the genesis of this exciting and unique alternative to traditional economic development termed "Enterprise Facilitation"- where depressed communities can build hope and prosperity by first helping individuals to recognize their talents and business passion, and then providing the skills to transform their dreams into meaningful and rewarding work.
The Zambezi River Basin
Author: Jonathan Lautze, Zebediah Phiri, Vladimir Smakhtin, Davison Saruchera
The Zambezi river is the fourth longest in Africa, crossing or bordering Zambia, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The river basin is widely recognised as one of the most important basins in southern Africa and is the focus of contested development, including water for hydropower and for agriculture and the environment. This book provides a thorough review of water and sustainable development in the Zambezi, in order to identify critical issues and propose constructive ways forward. The book first reviews the availability and use of water resources in the basin, outlines the basin’s economic potential and highlights key concerns related to climate vulnerability and risk. Focus is then devoted to hydropower and the water-energy-food (WEF) nexus, sustainable agricultural water management, and threats and opportunities related to provision of ecosystem services. The impact of urbanisation and water quality is also examined, as well as ways to enhance transboundary water cooperation. Last, the book assesses the level of water security in the basin, and provides suggestions for achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6. Throughout, emphasis is placed on entry points for basin-level management to foster improved paths forward.

Because of this Shirley is convinced that her husband is the father, and for years she hides the details of his own birth from him, but will Monica, the maid, reveal the facts surrounding Gavin's roots before the wind song blows the truth through the small fishing village on Lake Kariba? After Topaz turns 18, Dominic is astonished to learn that she is in fact the great granddaughter of tracker Elias Siamkwari and ivory hunter Sebastian L'Estrange, but why should she inherit the gold Huguenot cross with its definitive pearl that symbolizes the Holy Spirit? In this suspense-filled saga set in the mystical Zambezi Valley, against Zimbabwe's political background, the legacy of the Zambezi Wind Song is ultimately fulfilled.

In 2008, Zimbabwe is a particularly dangerous place. Corruption, violence, rape, murder, and inhuman levels of greed and brutality ruled the land as lawless gangs of murderers battled for power. Pieter van Rooyen, a commercial farmer turned environmentalist, has felt the terror firsthand. Seven years earlier, his family was brutally murdered and his farm seized during Zimbabwes violent land-distribution scheme. The experience changed his life and priorities; now he has dedicated his life to honoring life. He joins forces with Jessica Brennan, an American wildlife biologist, to protect Zimbabwes most threatened treasures, the elephants, which are being slaughtered by poachers and corrupt government officials alikeunder the guise of conservation. Jessica is conducting a scientific study of Zimbabwes elephants, studying herds that roam the eastern Zambezi Valley. There, she witnesses many of the daily threats they face, including habitat encroachment, floods, droughts, government mismanagement of wildlife areas, and slaughter by illegal ivory hunters. Jessica and Piet are joined by his former neighbor, Angus McLaren, another dispossessed farmer who narrowly escaped with his life when his farm was stolen by the so-called veterans of the independence war. Together, the trio wins over the local National Park Service chief, Hector Kaminjolo, and professional hunter Blair Nisbet, who step in to champion their cause. Despite the terror and sadness that surrounds them, Jessica and Pieter are reminded of the best of human nature as they discover love. Against a backdrop of kidnappings, murders, and international intrigue, a healing love story emerges, proving that love truly can conquer all.
