    Shifting Borders

    What would you do if you woke up one morning and discovered that the borders have changed?

    In the northern reaches of Southern Africa's biggest river basin, the Zambezi River Basin, lies the Songwe River, which forms the border between Tanzania and Malawi. This meandering river shifts its course with the annual floods, leaving some residents without land and the international border having shifted. For Hosea, this has resulted in an identity crisis. Join him as he sets off to answer the age old question; 'Who am I?'

    Zambezi Short Film

    This film demonstrates that when it comes to managing transboundary waters in the Zambezi River Basin (which is shared by eight SADC countries), regional cooperation is not an optional extra, but a matter of survival.
