Community mapping in the Okavango Panhandle
HOORC's Library had a visit today from team members of the Comic Relief / Open Channels sponsored Kuru project, Land and Livelihood Security. The project is producing community resource maps to support CBNRM activities in Ngamiland communities. Bill Kemp and Valter Blasovik from Strata 360, Montreal, Canada, who have worked on community mapping with First Nations communities in the Canadian north, and in the Mekong and Nile River basins, are visiting the project to provide advice and assistance. For more information about the Kuru project, contact Nathaniel Nuulimba. In HOORC's Library, you can find Boundaries of home : mapping for local empowerment.
