Research & Planning

In preparation for our project we spent 7 weeks conducting preliminary background research and looking into the Black River 2011 project to gain an understanding of the context of our project. Having gained an understanding of the previous students’ developments on the Black River project helped us to create goals for our project work. Based on our research we developed a mission and set of objectives as guidelines for how to approach our project once in Cape Town. The following pages will familiarize readers with our preparatory background research, the contextual boundaries within which we were working, as well as the mission and objectives we set to guide our work while in Cape Town.
