We will work together with “Dienst Landelijk Gebied” (DLG) of the Netherlands and with various partners in the Western Cape such as Land Care and the Western Cape Government. The project forms part of the Netherlands government’s “Natural Capital Agenda: conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity”. The Berg River is one of the areas prioritized as a pilot location for this agenda. The project’s intention is to explore sustainable ecosystem restoration in the Berg River. Living Lands will be the local coordinator of the project and will focus on the engagement with the communities and landowners to create collective action on the ground.
