    Description

    South Africa is one of the most biodiversity-rich countries in the world, with much valuable biodiversity situated on a range of different land tenure types, including state, private and communal land. Despite this, these wild lands are being lost at an unprecedented rate, with the resultant loss of natural areas and associated ecosystem services. The challenge lies in the need to protect the unique biodiversity, by integrating the development needs of poverty-stricken communities with the need to secure the remaining natural wild places, and thereby secure the very areas on which these communities rely for their daily requirements (water, firewood, medicinal plants).
