Abstract

Analyzes the ecological basis of settlement in the Upper Zambezi flood-plain, W Province. Describes early movement, pre-colonial interest in the flood-plain margins. Concludes that with continued provision of services along the edge of the plain and worsening of flood conditions as canal maintenance brigades remain understaffed, the abandonment of the flood-plain is unlikely to be reversed. Increased accumulation of possessions will reinforce the desire for the end of Lozi transhumance and for permanent settlement at the edge of the plains where flood damage does not occur. The gardens in the plains with the richest local soils will continue to fall out of use while cassava cultivation on the sandy forest gardens will grow in importance. -M.J.Shepperdson (CDS)
