As part of the SCIONA Community Engagement activities, a SCIONA team embarked on a fieldtrip to conduct household surveys in Epupa and Okanguati conservancies on the 1st to the 14th of September 2019. The team camped in both Epupa and Okanguati.
A multidisciplinary SCIONA team travelled from Windhoek to Iona National Park in Angola during the second half of May 2019. Community workshops were held in and near the park: at Monte Negro near the border with Namibia, at Cambeno in the centre, and at Pediva just north of the park. The workshops aimed to engage local stakeholders in topics ranging from livelihoods to ecosystem management.
The SCIONA team joined the EU Ambassador to Namibia on a field trip to Kunene from 20 to 26 August. On the 21st of August, the SCIONA project was introduced to the Honourable Governor of Kunene Marius Sheya and the Mayor of Opuwo Albert Tjiuma.
