Abstract: "This paper is intended to aid in the process by which interested parties within and without the University of Zimbabwe can refine, criticize, and redefine the critical issues in Zambezi River Basin development, how they might be best researched (combining both relevant policy and basic research), and what other actions might be appropriate. In setting out some of the social science issues involved, it becomes immediately evident that involvement of other disciplines is necessary. While one could draw up a list of the essential ones, processionally these should come from other university units in the Zambezi area, and from the actual and proposed development programs and projects. It is suggested that these studies avail themselves of the latest methodologies in participatory research, monitoring, and evaluation to provide an interface with local populations. Indeed, it is hoped that these studies will provide an experiment for testing different methodologies and adopting those most appropriate for Zimbabwe."
