Die ersten Grüße in diesem Blog erreichen Sie aus Beira, Mosambik- ist das nicht wunderbar? Ich bin zwar in der Ferne, trotzdem erfuhr ich dank der modernen Technik von der Institutsgründung UNU-Flores in Dresden. Das freut mich sehr, da dies eine Verbindung zwischen meinem Geburtsland darstellt, wo ich zur Zeit für eine internationale Hilfsorganisation unweit des Zambezi tätig bin, und dem Land, in dem ich studierte, promovierte – also meiner neuen Heimat. Da meine Tätigkeit derzeit insbesondere capacity building in den Gemeinden in der Provinz Sofala betrifft, um die Milleniumsziele der UNO im Bereich der ländlichen Entwicklung umzusetzen, werde ich immer auch mit dem schwachen Ressourcenmanagement vor Ort konfrontiert und erlebe tagtäglich die geringen Kenntnisse der lokalen Bevölkerung bezüglich der nachhaltigen Nutzung der natürlichen Ressourcen. Daher bin ich sehr an den Ergebnissen des aktuellen Workshop interessiert und würde gern in einen zunächst vorzugsweise schriftlichen Erfahrungsaustausch mit Ihnen treten. Eventuell könnte sich auch die Gelegenheit zu einem Treffen ab 18.12. (bis Anfang Januar – 3.1.) ergeben, da ich mich dann bei meiner Familie in Dresden aufhalte. Ich könnte mir gut eine Chance zum networking vorstellen.
Viele Grüße aus dem heißen Beira, Mosambik von Dr. Jaime Cossa

The first blogger comes from Beira, Mosambik- isn’t that great ? I’m several thousand kilometres away but the electronic media give me the possibility to learn about the newly founded institute of the UN in Dresden. I was so positively surprised as this represents a link between the country where I was born and grew up and I’m presently working for an organization of development assistance and the country I am now a citizen of as I studied in Germany. At work in the communities in the Mozambican province Sofala I am constantly confronted with the lack of knowledge of reasonable management of natural resources. Therefore capacity building is one of my main tasks in the Zambezi region at the present. I am interested in the results of your recently finished workshop and the scheduled work of your institute and would like to get some information about that. Up to the 17th December I am staying in Mozambique before I’m coming for Christmas holidays to my family in Dresden. I would be very pleased to get into contact with you to analyse possibilities of networking.
Best regards from the really hot Beira to the probably cold Dresden.
Dr. Jaime Cossa
