Enhancing transboundary water and biodiversity management within the constraints of climate change will enhance the resilience of the ecosystems and people in the Limpopo River Basin (LRB). That is the objective of the Resilience in the Limpopo Basin (RESILIM) Program.

This report produces the research and analysis of the biophysical, economic and socio-political system which characterizes each hotspot and gives rise to its identified vulnerability. It further analyzes the politic economy governing the LRB as a system, providing a political economy context to the identified hotspots and potentially contributing to the status of each as a ‘tipping point’, or sub-system that has crossed or is likely to cross a critical threshold.
