United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) ; the African Centre for Water Research (ACWR) ; Western Indian Ocean Marine Sciences Association (WIOMSA) (2009)

This report presents an assessment of hydrological and land use  characteristics affecting  river‐coast interactions in the West Indian Ocean region. One of the key areas of concern for  the WIO region relates to the interaction between river basins and the coastal and marine  environment.  The report  provides  an  overview  of the  characteristics  of the main rivers  flowing into the South‐West Indian Ocean, from Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa  and Madagascar incorporating hydrology, land use and environmental issues.
