TFO Final Dissemination Tour - Book Launch in Windhoek, Namibia

A short overview

On Monday, July 13 2015, the 'The Future Okavango - Findings, Scenarios and Recommendations for Action' of the project 'The Future Okavango' was launched at the Polytechnic of Namibia in Windhoek. Firstly, a technical meeting for scientists and stakeholders working in the field of sustainable land management took place.

Presentations on climate and climate change, water availability and management, management of natural resources, agriculture as well as society and governance were given and the key findings of the TFO project were discussed. Then, the Final Synthesis Report was officially launched by the director of the Polytechnic of Namibia Prof. Tjama Tjivikua and Prof. Dr. Norbert Jürgens, the speaker of the TFO consortium.

The 'The Future Okavango - Findings, Scenarios and Recommendations for Action' provides a condensed and integrated description of the status quo of the Okavango basin, an in-depth look at the key findings as produced by the various partners involved in the TFO-project as well as four alternative pathways into the future (scenarios) which will give interested stakeholders and decision makers a lot of food for thought. It is available for download at the download section of the TFO website more

In the evening, Prof. Dr. Norbert Jürgens and four researchers of 'The Future Okavango' (TFO) project presented and discussed their findings and recommendations to a broader audience at the Namibia Scientific Society. All events were chaired by Dr. Ben Strohbach from the Polytechnic of Namibia.
