Building Micro Enterprises and Cleansing the Keurbooms River in southern Cape

Eden to Addo, with the support of the Table Mountain Fund and WWF-SA, have successfully secured three years of funding to the value of R8,2 million from the Department of Environmental Affairs for the clearing of alien vegetation in the mountain catchment area above Plettenberg Bay.

The Land User Incentive funds from the Department of Environmental Affairs are earmarked for the creation of new jobs for local residents with an emphasis on women (60%) and youth (25%) but will only be made available if Eden to Addo and WWF South Africa can raise the necessary co-financing for project management.

The aim is to:

Leverage the DEA funds.
Maximize opportunities for human resource development.
Explore methods of sustainably adding value to the waste biomass
Secure funds for formal protection of the land.
