  ZAMBEZI - LoveToKnow Article on ZAMBEZI
In the first hundred miles of its course the river is known as the Yambeshein sound almost identical with its name in its lower course, though intervening sections are known as Liambeshe, Liambai, andc.
As it flows eastward towards the border of the great central plateau of Africa it reaches a tremendous chasm in the floor of the earth, and thus the Victoria Falls (g.e.), the largest waterfalls in the world, are formed.
The region drained by the Zambezi may be represented as a vast broken-edged plateau 3000 or 4000 ft. high, composed in the remote interior of metamorphic beds and fringed with the igneous rocks of the Victoria Falls.

 International Rivers Network: South Africa
Our work in Africa strives to promote sound energy and water developments based on social justice, equitable sharing of benefits and costs, and environmental sustainability; and river–development planning processes that ensure participation by local communities in decisions that affect their lives.
Although Africa’s great rivers are considered "under–dammed" by global standards, the continent’s large dams (more than 1,270 at last count) have consistently been built at the expense of rural communities, who have sacrificed their lands and livelihoods to them yet reaped few benefits.
Africa’s dams have done considerable social, environmental and economic damage, often with complete disregard for the human rights of dam–affected communities, and have left a trail of "development–induced poverty" in their wake.
