This film introduces the TFO project that is dedicated to improve sustainable landuse management in the Okavango region of Angola, Namibia and Botswana, featuring interviews with local farmers and Prof. Norbert Jürgens, the head of the project. Attention is drawn to the vulnerability of the system and how it is affected by current and future anthropogenic pressures. The Okavango is the major lifeline for the people in the region. It is therefore paramount that solutions are found to alleviate some of the pressures by adapting to change. The TFO project aims at facilitating this change. This is done by generating information on the ecological and social systems to derive products for decision support and to involve landusers and decision makers from the region to create awareness and communicate possible solution.
Is a product of the scientific coordination and synthesis project GLUES and the TFO project, both of which are part of the sustainable land management funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
