Description

The Centre for African Resorces: Animals, Communities and Land Use (CARACAL) aims at utilising the ecosystem approach and partipatory techniques including GIS to identify key resources essential to community livelihoods with emphasis on gender specific issues and to identify needs, opportunities and threats to these resources in the international waterways of Chobe, Linyanti and Kwando. The involvement of communities through participatory techniques and engagement of other stakeholders through a proactive forum will provide the basis for a wetland inventory leading to the development of an integrated wetland plan for Chobe, Linyanti and Kwando Wetlands in Northern Botswana. The wetlands inventory will promote greater ownership and resource access for the communities in the Chobe, Linyanti and Kwando system.
