Academic paper exploring managed floods in Kafue Flats, Zambia.

Whilst the benefits of environmental flows have been demonstrated in many parts of the world, there is much less experience with managed flood releases from reservoirs. In this paper, we will present the experience of a WWF sponsored project in Zambia aimed at restoring floods in the Kafue Flats.
