Workshops to plan how the savannahs can be enhanced

On March 19th, GEPOG hosted the first of a series of workshops whose aim is to prepare a plan to enhance the sympathetic development of the savannahs in the communes of Sinnamary and Iracoubo.

These workshops will bring together the project’s steering committee but are equally open to any of the inhabitants of the two municipalities.

The twelve participants at this first session spent three hours concentrating on the heritage and characteristics of the savannahs as well as on the objectives envisioned for their future enhancement.

These meetings are organised specifically so that there is enough thinking and discussion time for everyone to express a view, argue their case and to consider how to combine all the ideas presented.

The joint deliberations and the results of each session will provide a systematic base from which future workshops can move forward, the overall aim being to set up some effective management tools between now and the end of 2015.
