The Okavango Freshwater Biodiversity Expert meeting will take place at HOORC in Maun from 24 to 27 October. The meeting will focus on data availability for species with potential value in monitoring the Delta’s water quality over a long-term horizon. Participants will be reviewing the available species data in a few key taxonomic groups – fish, mollusks, crabs, odonates, and some aquatic plants. They will make technical recommendations on baseline field surveys necessary for the eventual development of indices of biological integrity. Registration is essential. Contact Jessica Jones ( for further details.
