Angola, Namibia Sign Accord Over Cuvelai Waters: Jornal

Angola and southern neighbor Namibia signed an accord to manage the Cuvelai river basin whose waters are shared by the two southwest African countries, according to state-controlled Jornal de Angola.

Two-thirds of the 150,000-square-kilometer (58,000 square mile) watershed is in Namibia, a land marked by the Kalahari desert that’s one of the most sparsely settled on Earth. The nation has 2.2 million people over 824,000 square kilometers.
