Lakes District Project

The Lake District Project aims to improve and secure the ecological integrity of three critical grassland (the Sneeuberg Protected Environment in Memel, Ingula near Harrismith and the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA).

The project is focused on the wetland and biodiversity areas, taking into account the ecological, economic and social factors within each area.

In this instance, the stewardship process, which aims to support and develop innovative ways to reconnect food systems and ecosystems, in order to create awareness on the importance of preserving remaining natural areas of high conservation among farmers will play a critical role in facilitating support in all three areas.

This approach is aimed at facilitating poverty alleviation projects aimed at improving ecological systems of seven status areas, such as Working for Water, Working for Wetlands and Working on Fire.

The project will be facilitated through active engagement and partnership with relevant organizations in tendering for such projects.
