Hannelore Bendsen receives first Moabi Wa Kitso award

HOORC staff gathered today to say goodbye to HOORC researcher and long time Ngamiland resident Hannelore Bendsen. Mrs Bendsen, a land use planner, had worked since 1979 for the Botswana government, then as a consultant and most recently as coordinator of HOORC's input for the Okavango Delta Management Plan.

Mrs Bendsen was awarded the first Moabi Wa Kitso Award for Knowledge Sharing for the Okavango Delta by HOORC's Library. The award has been created to annually recognize a person who has made a significant contribution to sharing of knowledge to the benefit of the Okavango community.
