Environmental Change and Adaptation Capacities of River Basin Organizations in Southern Africa

Schulze, Sabine

The project investigates forms of de- and reterritorialization in Africa by focusing on water management and thus analysing the use of a scarce and environmentally sensitive resource. Due to the fact that this is possible only by means of transnational cooperation between those countries that are dependent on major river systems, the analysis is focused on international regimes, forms of bilateral cooperations and regional cross-border interaction. The PhD project by Sabine Schulze is supervised by Ulf Engel and will continue in 2011. It is funded by the Foundation of German Business (Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft).
