Zambezi-Chobe transboundary fisheries project
The Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF), in partnership with the Worldwide Fund for Wildlife’s Southern Africa Regional Programme Office (SARPO), WWF’s Living In A Finite Environment Plus (LIFE) Project in Namibia, the Zambia Department of Fisheries and the Namibia Ministry of Fisheries, has initiated a fisheries project on the Zambezi / Chobe system, working out of Katima Mulilo in Caprivi. The project, Integrated Management of the Zambezi / Chobe River System Transboundary Fishery Resource, aims to pilot and test alternative community fishery management practices that contribute to a fully integrated management system for subsistence, semi-commercial, and sport fisheries. The project is seeking a consultant to begin the project – contact Dr Chris Brown of the Namibia Nature Foundation for more information before 14 August 2006.
