The management of the LMP, as well as the public interface, is undertaken by Project Manager, Conor Eastment, whilst the team continues to be supervised by the highly capable Mncekeleli Klaas. ABAX’s generous contributions continue to support the wages of the project manager, team supervisor and four of the remaining seven team members.
Project Successes in 2016
Over the past year, the LMP has built on previous successes as well as fostered existing relationships in furtherance of the pursuit of a healthier riverine environment. The LMP team’s constant presence on the river has become familiar with many river users as we continue to expand the reach and efficacy of the Project. We continue to encourage and foster a participative ethic with river users, as evidenced by the success of our social media platforms.
The focus of the LMP team in 2016 has mainly been in the middle and lower reaches of the river, with the predominant focus being on rehabilitation and engagement with previously uninvolved partners along the river.
