Abstract
    Throughout the ages the seashore worldwide has exerted a continuous attraction on settlers. Why? Originally because of food supplies and transportation possibilities, and more recently because of its high potential for socio-economic developments.As the burden on coastal settlements gets heavier due to population concentration and competition for space and the coast is relentlessly battered as a consequence of the steady sea level rise, all possible solutions should be taken into account to prevent disasters.Theoretically, sea level rise could be controlled by reducing the amount of water returning from the continent to the ocean.Construction of large reservoirs, artificially achieved using dams or natural depressions, leads to a conceivable redistribution in time and location of the water on the continents.Indeed, many projects of global scale have been considered! Several such “engineers’ dreams” are not science fiction. One of them is a water-transfer scheme from the Zaire River Basin to Lake Chad.
