MASVINGO – The
Environment Management Agency (Ema) has partnered key stakeholders for an integrated
environmental project management training workshop at Bere Township in Mashava.
The
event will run from Tuesday 10 to Sunday, September 15, 2019.
Ema
Masvingo provincial director Milton Muusha said the workshop was targeting
communities that are actively involved in sustainable management of waste to
keep the environment clean.
“The
workshop will run for six days and we have invited all Ward 5 people to attend.
We will be training them on waste recycling, business management, environmental
laws, fisheries and aquaculture which will benefit them financially,” said
Mausha.
The
initiative is being collaboratively sponsored by Ema, Masvingo RDC Ward 5 Cllr
Aleta Makomeke, Masvingo RDC and the Network of Christian Charity Arrows (Nocca).
The
participants will be taught how to recycle and reuse plastic waste to make
artefacts and to make three-legged pots from molten aluminium of empty cans.
They
will also be trained the importance of conservation and sustainable
exploitation of the ecosystem’s trees, grass and water bodies which are all vital
components for successful beekeeping projects.
The
participants will also be taught veld fire management because veld fires can
affect beekeeping projects.
Muusha
said best practices in aquaculture as an alternative source of food and sustainable
livelihoods will be taught, adding that participants will also be given a
heads-up on the country’s environmental laws.
Representatives
from the Forestry Commission, Masvingo Rural District Council RDC, Masvingo
Urban Recycling Company (MURC) will participate in the training.
