Progress Report No. XI. Sept 1998 - Nov 1998.
This quarter was highlighted by three important events: the arrival of three of the four facilitators in the field, the visit of a two man mission to undertake a mid-term evaluation (MTE) of the project and the first Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) of the threats to the lake. In other areas the project had, in general, a very active quarter with a number of notable advances in the special studies particularly with regard to the development of work programmes in the Francophone region. Lamentably, as reported in the last quarterly report, the good progress made in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since early 1998 was abruptly curtailed in August owing to renewed fighting in the eastern region of the country. However, towards the end of this quarter the border between Burundi and DRC has reopened and security conditions have improved somewhat to the point where project activities, including the renovation of CRH are once again in progress.
