A workshop, Environmental Change in the Kalahari Region, will be held in Maun, Botswana on the 3rd – 6th March, 2008. There are four major themes for the workshop:
1) Monitoring for environmental change
2) Palaeo-environmental change in Africa
3) Environmental change and human well being
4) Transboundary range resource issues.
An objective of the workshop is to form a research group of people currently engaged in studying environmental change in Africa, with a specific focus on the Kalahari region.
A significant portion of time will be dedicated to proposal writing for each of the groups under the major themes listed above.
