Report on the South Africa Pilot, 26 February to 9th March 2007.
This pilot was conducted to accomplish field tests in South Africa of the methods and 'instruments' (checklists, survey questionnaire etc.) which we plan to apply in the project across the three countries. It aimed to assess the length of time required for particular methods and to devise a broad programme/pattern of research for application in each site. A further aim was to train the South African RAs in each zone to ensure their competence in the full range of methods to be employed.
