Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) of the Bostwana portion of Okavango River Basin: stakeholder involvement in the ODMP and its relevance to the TDA process
The transboudary diagnostic assessment (TDA) for the Delta part of the Okavango River Basin (ORB) was based on the extensive research and planning outputs of the ODMPprocess which was completed in 2006. For this reason the TDA process adopted all the ODMP stakeholder participation processes including decisions made regarding methodology, context and spatial extent of the planning area. This paper describes the ODMP stakeholder process as a proxy for the TDA consultation process. It is important to note that during the TDA process consultation was extended with two stakeholder workshops and briefing meetings for the Okavango Wetland management Committee (OWMC) dedicated specifically towards creating awareness and seeking stakeholder participation in the TDA process.
