This delta in north-west Botswana comprises permanent marshlands and seasonally flooded plains. It is one of the very few major interior delta systems that do not flow into a sea or ocean, with a wetland system that is almost intact.

Neva - a symbol of St. Petersburg and the only source of drinking water for millions of people in the city and some settlements of the Leningrad region. Unlike most megacities, Petersburg has practically no alternative sources of water supply, in addition to the Neva. But Neva is not only used for the abstraction of water. The majestic River directly discharged wastewater of industrial enterprises and public utilities.

Lithuania, the same as neighbouring countries, during the last 60 years has experienced loss of nature conserving agricultural activities. These processes left Southern Lithuania’s landscape with a low water body density and a rapidly ongoing natural succession on abandoned agricultural areas. Such loss of open, extensively used habitats threatens amphibian and reptile species (Habitats Directive)

Down the centre of the valley flows the Luangwa River, fed by dozens of sand rivers that come down during the rainy season. The Luangwa carves a tortuous course along the floor and when in flood rapidly erodes the outer bends, depositing silt within the loops. Eventually the river cuts a new course, leaving the old course to silt up, forming ‘ox bow’ lagoons...

A number of initiatives are currently taking place across the Prut River Basin. From workshops to case studies, there is a focus on strengthening the capacity of the Prut River Basin countries...

One of the lessons to come out of the floods is that defences alone can't protect all our communities from such extreme events. So how can we do more to reduce the risks in the future? A growing part of the answer could be environmental projects, designed to slow key rivers and reduce the intensity of water flows at peak times. Tim Backshall has been looking at some of the ideas.
