Protecting South Africa’s water for people and biodiversity - the Umzimvubu River Catchment Partnership Programme

Pays :Afrique du Sud

Durée : 7 June 2013 - 6 June 2018

In Eastern Cape Province, water resources are under threat from inappropriate land use and invasive alien plants. One of the most densely populated and poverty-stricken regions in sub-Saharan Africa, it is also home to the Upper Umzimvubu River Catchment, which provides water for many of the 1 million people in the area. The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund, a partnership of seven donors including the EU, is funding Conservation South Africa and Environmental and Rural Solutions to work with communities and local and national government to improve the catchment and human well-being.

The overarching objective of the Fund is to strengthen the involvement and effectiveness of NGOs and other sectors of civil society in contributing to conservation and management of globally significant biodiversity hotspots. Restoration and maintenance of water, grazing and erosion control services through improved farm management, supporting more than 300 households within five years, and more than 1 million people living in the river basin within 20 years.
Improved management of communal land areas s and private farms, through agreements that offer incentives for improved farm management and alien plant removal.
Development of a network of civil society, government and businesses to ensure coordination and lesson sharing within the network and with government and corporate policy-makers.
