Salewicz; hydropolitical dynamics of the Orange River basin, by Anthony Turton; an equitable basis for water sharing in the Okavango River basin, by Peter Ashton; hydropolitics in the Zambezi River basin, by Munyaradzi Chenje; joint development and cooperation in international water resources (the Limpopo and Orange rivers), by Abdullahi Elmi Mohamed; interaction and constraints in international river basins (the Kunene River), by Richard Meissner; summary of presentations and discussions made at the workshop held on 25 and 26 September 2000 in Sandton, South Africa, by Zafar Adeel, Thomas Ballatore and Meredith Giordano.
