The workshop and report preparation was jointly facilitated by the target district (Kgalagadi and Ghanzi) land boards, Botswana’s Ministry of Land Management Water and Sanitation Services (MLWS), and Ministry of Environment, Natural Resource Conservation and Tourism (MENT) represented by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP), Department of Forestry and Range Resources (DFRR) and Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA). A total of 12 technical officers from these ministries, together with the KGDEP Project Management Unit (PMU) and Chief Technical Advisory (CTA) team, held intensive sessions over four days. By the workshop’s conclusion, the stakeholders had developed a draft inception report which will be used to guide detailed studies towards the development of the ILUMP and, once finalised, will be shared with all relevant stakeholders. The finalised inception report will be presented at the broader stakeholder workshop which is anticipated to take place on 5–10 October 2020. This workshop will also serve to catalyse the start of the ILUMP development.
