Well it has been 3 months since my return from The Netherlands and my YEP training... and 4 months since I started work at WWF Zambia. I wish I could say that I have settled in but I am well on my way there.
Most of the work so far has been meeting with different strategic partners. Working through how the monitoring plan can be structured depending upon mandate and institutional capacity of our different partner institutions. In August my colleague Elke and I traveled to Mozambique and met with 3 institutions in August.
Our focus has shifted a little more to the Zambian side so we are planning engagement strategies with the rest of the WWF Freshwater Team and hoping for a field trip real soon! There has been lots of admin and planning work which is the boring part but one needs a vision to guide ones actions and objectives.
More from me in my next update!
