The fair also gave us the opportunity to be in close proximity and have face to face interactions with the public, whereby they were able to comment on some revised guidelines and policies for development on both Praslin and la Digue Island.

Our aim was to also  gather as much information as possible from the general public.

. One major topic on our agenda was the Anse Lazio land use plan. The process of gathering information was done in a strategic manner, starting with a brief presentation by members of our team on the proposed land use plan, followed by a questionnaire.

People seemed very interested as many flocked in over the two days to participate and also to view the displays.
