ODMP fire management work

The inception report for Component Eight of the Okavango Delta Management Plan work, Vegetation Resource Management Fire Management Plan, was presented at HOORC last week by consultants from Environet Solutions. Fire has been used for centuries by people living in the Okavango Delta to control vegetation. Work on this part of Component Eight, to be completed in July 2006, is focused on collection and analysis of information about the long term effects of this burning on the ecology of the Delta Ramsar site. The report can be found in HOORC’s Library.
