Hydrological Basins in Africa

Africa is home to the longest river in the world -the Nile- and other major rivers like the Congo and the Niger. This layer shows the official boundaries of river (sub-)basins in Africa (approved and used by the FAO). The downloadable dataset contains the boundaries of the major hydrological basins and their sub-basins. It divides the African continent according to its hydrological characteristics.
