From 24th to 27th of July 2017 the SECOSUD II Project has organised and executed an on-the-job training course for the personnel of the Faculty of Agronomy and Forest Engineering (UEM FAEF), of the National Administration of Conservation Areas (ANAC) and of the Maputo Special Reserve (REM). This training was held in Maputo, at the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM), and has focused the replication of the Fire Management Methodology and Approach used by the Kruger National Park (KNP) for the Limpopo National Park (LNP).
Two pilot weather stations (Vantage Pro 2 Plus, Davis) have been installed by SECOSUD II staff in Limpopo National Park (Mozambique) and are already operational. They are sending data from LNP Offices near Massingir gate and from Madingane village in the Park buffer zone (see the map below). These weather stations measure, log and upload to the cloud data about temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, rain, wind speed and direction, solar radiation and energy, ET (evapotraspiration) and UV.
