Duzi Green Corridor (Pilot) Project | WWF South Africa

Duzi Green Corridor (Pilot) Project

This project aims to arrest and reverse the rapid decline of one of the country’s highest priority ecological infrastructure and water security assets. The decline of the Duzi River corridor poses significant economic and environmental consequences for the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

Therefore, a community-public-private- partnership (CPPP) has been created and tasked with establishing a green riparian corridor on the upper uMsunduzi River. The corridor stretches for about 60 kms, from Pietermaritzburg to the uMsunduzi source, starting initially with two key tributary hotspots in Pietermaritzburg’s Ashdown and Imbali townships.

Innovative approaches to grass roots, integrated river health actions and outcomes will be tested through local green hubs and replicated across the whole uMsunduzi and broader Umgeni Catchment area, in due course.
