Work experience
The project experience include development of annual plans of operation for degraded and rehabilitation programme across 18 national parks, including review and development of park management plans. Field experience includes mapping of degraded areas and development of rehabilitation for identified sites. The plans also include research, monitoring and costing of identified sites for rehabilitation measures. Review of park management plans include coordination and development of lower level biodiversity plans. Plans are written by different scientists based in different locations in the country. The project plan consists of activities with deadlines and costing processes. The second phase entailed review of all the lower level plans followed by submission to the executive committee for final approval.
