Authors: Dr. L. Magole, Dr. J.R. Atlhopheng, prof. R. Chanda

The workshop methodology was designed and coordinated through Research Theme 3: Potential prevention & mitigation strategies and consisted of three main elements:

  • A participatory approach to guide and lead the workshop participants through a process of multi-criteria evaluation of different options which finally results in decision-making on strategies to be field-tested.
  • The WOCAT database containing locally applied options as well as options from a number of other contexts.
  • 'Facilitator', a Multi Objective Decision Support System (MODSS) software to support the single steps of the evaluation and decision-making process.

Target groups were the same as in the 1st workshop: local stakeholders (land users, representatives of local authorities, local NGOs) and external stakeholders (researchers, development professionals, NGOs, GOs).



As a result of the workshop, the following measure was selected for testing in field experiment.
