  • WWF is implementing a public campaign to highlight the value of the Luangwa river. The Luangwa was identified as one of the longest remaining free-flowing rivers in Zambia, and is one of the biggest unaltered rivers in Southern Africa. Its seasonal changes support a vibrant local community, agriculture industry and a growing tourism industry that is entirely based on the rich wildlife and beautiful scenery of this catchment. Unfortunately, the ecosystem services that the river provides are now threatened by hydropower development, deforestation and unsustainable commercial agriculture, among other things.
