Popoulation density increasing, per capita land area shrinking in Zambezi River Basin

Year: 2013 Author: GRID-Arendal
Description:
The population of the Zambezi River Basin grew from 31.7 million in 1998 to 38.4 million in 2005, before reaching 40 million in 2008. It is projected that by 2025 the population will reach 51 million (Chenje 2000; SADC and ZRA 2007; SARDC and HBS 2010). Although sparsely populated, average population densities in the basin show a consistent shrinkage in per capita land availability, which is projected to decline to 2.56 hectares/ person in 2025 from as much as 4.16 hectares/person in 1998.
