In the framework of the project "Integrated Watershed Management Research and Development Capacity Building" Master students of Freie Universität Berlin did two months field work (01-02/2014) in the "living laboratory" in South Africa: the Krom Antonies catchment in the province Western Cape. The Master students worked on "Landscape Sensitivity" as well as on the topic of "Water Governance". Therefore the main part of the field work was

  • to map the catchment according to landuse, soil and vegetation types
  • to sample sediment for laboratory treatment in the aftermath
  • to gather geospatial data at different departments and agencies
  • to conduct interviews with different stakeholders.
