The challenge that the project addresses

Osiman Mabhachi used his Impact Award to run educational workshops on wetland management for the local community in the Driefontein Grasslands area. Additionally, the project acted as a primer for adoption of land use practices and institutions that could contribute to wetland conservation. Osiman included lessons on award-winning projects in Kenya and Uganda that have helped rural communities develop local management structures to ensure that wetlands are used for the benefit of humans and biodiversity.
