Limits of acceptable change in the Delta

Birdwatchers on the Boteti River

Steve Johnson, consultant for the Okavango Delta Management Plan (ODMP) project, made a presentation at HOORC this week about his team’s work on the limits of acceptable change in relation to tourism in the Okavango Delta. The consultants are looking at methods to measure and monitor the impact of tourism on the Delta, and to build consensus among stakeholders as to the types and levels of intensity of use of Delta resources. An important question is, which agencies would implement this approach? The consultants will prepare a report of their findings and recommendations for ODMP. In HOORC’s library, you can find Joseph Mbaiwa’s earlier work, Limits of acceptable change for tourism in the Okavango Delta.
