The EMSEZ, the Musina Dam and Water Governance of the Limpopo Web Seminar and media launch
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung South Africa commissioned a study, building on an initial report published in May 2020 [link - “Water risks of fossil fuel mega projects in Limpopo: the MCWAP and the EMSEZ”], to investigate the governance of water in the Limpopo River catchment, both in the South African portion, in which the EMSEZ - Electro-Minerals Special Economic Zone - the southern site of the Musina-Makhado SEZ, or MMSEZ, recently rebranded as the Musina-Makhado SEZ - is set to take place, and amongst the four riparian countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The scope was recently extended to include analysis of a Pre-feasibility Study for a proposed big dam to store Limpopo River floodwaters.
Presentation of research report by Dr Victor Munnik with Question and Answer and comment, followed by discussion and networking.
