Water, essential in the conservancies
We all know ‘Water is Life,’ especially in the dry climate where the Nyae Nyae Conservancy is located. Rian Brandt has been engaged over the last few years to ensure that the water infrastructure for conservancy villages, their schools, gardens and livestock is reliable. Currently funded by the Environmental Investment Fund, Rian will spend more than 60 days in the Conservancy this year. During this time he will service village water infrastructure and ensure every village water point is functioning optimally. At the same time assessing whether the current infrastructure is able to meet village needs, or if changes need to made given increasing gardens and livestock numbers.
From his ‘bush-office’ Bandt tracks his progress at each water point and sends regular reports and updates giving the relevant stakeholders such as EIF and the community a ‘real-time’ insight into the state of the water infrastructure at the conservancy.
