Capricorn Consultants Ltd
Tsetse Plan arose, in part, through our work with various community-based livestock projects in Tanzania, including the Tanga Dairy Development Project. Birgit Van Munster and Chesnodi Kulanga were involved in these earlier projects and subsequently, as members of Capricorn Consultants, helped field test Tsetse Plan.
The idea of developing a 'virtual entomologist' to help NGOs design tsetse control operations arose, in part, through our work with FARM Africa in Ethiopia. Subsequently, Tibebu Habtewold, Sheila Willis, Christie Peacock and other members of FARM provided guidance on making Tsetse Plan suitable for development NGOs.
