VISIONS 2030 for the Okavango River Basin. Inspirations from 27 stakeholders from all levels - Learning from one another to better anticipate the future. By Stephanie Domptail & Oliver Mundy.

The booklet provides a feedback to stakeholders who participated in face-to-face interviews concerning land use and livelihoods in the Okavango River Basin (ORB) conducted from November 2012 to June 2013, in the context of The Future Okavango (TFO) research project. It further addresses all actors of the ORB, including the researchers taking part in the TFO research project. The booklet illustrates the diversity of opinions existing in the basin about how land use and well-being should develop. The 27 selected visions for the Okavango River Basin in 2030 shared in the document come from stakeholders from each of three countries of the basin and from different scales of decision making on land use (local, regional/district/provincial, national and basin)”.
