The Zambezi River Authority is preparing to conduct disclosure meetings with communities in Zambia and Zimbabwe whose land or livelihoods could be affected by the construction of the proposed 2 400 MW Batoka Gorge Hydro Electric Scheme, a transboundary project located 47 km downstream of the Victoria Falls. Engineering news reports that based on the census and asset surveys conducted in 2019, the land acquisition required will result in the “economic displacement” of some 467 households while access to communal grazing land, ecosystem services and access routes for 210 households on 489 ha of land will be affected. 160 ha of agricultural fields, fencing, bush fences, and protective wild trees would also be impacted.
