Principle 2: Does climate matter?
Lake Chicamba is fed by the Zambezi watershed, gathering
water from tributaries in Angola, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe
and flowing eastwards for 3,000 kilometres before reaching the Indian
Ocean off Mozambique. Extremes in rainfall over the extensive Zambezi
map) strongly influence streamflow and ultimately, the water levels
in the Chicamba reservoir. Therefore, climate clearly has an impact on
Filipe's management decisions.
