17 May 2018Last year we hosted environmental capacity building workshops in all districts to the institution of Traditional Leaders. The objective was to provide and share information about environmental legislation and implementation at various levels. This was triggered by the findings of the Environmental Compliance and Enforcement blitz which uncovered a number of environmental non-compliance incidences in traditional community areas.  

As a result of the findings of the traditional leaders’ capacity building workshops, the department will be hosting an Indaba which will be focusing on natural resources management by traditional leaders: To identify critical areas to be protected in traditional leaders areas of jurisdiction; identify areas of collaboration between traditional leaders institution, LEDET, Municipalities, other relevant sector departments and business over sustainable use of natural resources and to develop a traditional communities natural resources economic beneficiation model as per the needs of individual districts and communities.
