Aquatic Biodiversity : about_freshwater/what_we_do_freshwater/pan_africa_freshwater_ba/freshwater_biodiversity_browser/

The Freshwater Biodiversity Browser is a simple interactive map which allows you to explore the biodiversity of Africa’s freshwaters, based on data collated through IUCN's Pan Africa Freshwater Biodiversity Assessment. Here you can view information about where species are found, how many are found there, and how they have been assessed by the IUCN Red List.

Integrated Water Basin Management

The World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP), founded in 2000, is the flagship programme
of UN-Water. Housed in UNESCO, WWAP monitors freshwater issues in order to provide
recommendations, develop case studies, enhance assessment capacity at a national level and
inform the decision-making process. Its primary product, the World Water Development Report
(WWDR), is a periodic, comprehensive review providing an authoritative picture of the state of the
world’s freshwater resources.
