River baseflows for perennial streams are derived from ground water

Groundwater recharge is enhanced by trees and plants which slows down the runoff from rains (infiltration)

Number 2 you dont know what you are saying.

Review your hydrogeological cycle to understand how everything is linked. Not assumptions.

The absence of trees does not result in LESS water in rivers and lakes. Trees actually soak up water and are planted/preserved in order to prevent water flowing into rivers and latkes which can result in flooding. Deforestation in Malawi therefore should have the effect of INCREASING the flow of water into rivers and lakes as there are no trees to soak it up. If this point was made at the conference, APM must not have been listening.

Deforestation in Malawi should mean MORE water is flowing into rivers and lakes. Surely this point was made at the conference APM attended and perhaps he wasn’t paying full attention.

Water is not an issue in Malawi. Lake Malawi will never dry up and there are many rivers that have water throughout the year. The problem is that govt lacks vision to bring water to the people. Imagine hearing stories like there is water shortage in Blantyre or Lilongwe. It does not make any sense.
Invest in water management. Pump water from the lake to major cities and towns and use some of it for irrigation.
