Working for Wetlands Strategy for 2006-2010. Directly or indirectly, everyone depends on wetlands.
To stem their loss and maintain and enhance the benefits they provide, government recognises that strategies for wetland conservation must combine proactive measures to maintain healthy wetlands with interventions to rehabilitate those that are degraded. These objectives are expressed in a co-ordinated and innovative way through Working for Wetlands Through its managed network model of operating, SANBI is ideally placed to secure collaboration to support the outcomes identified by all the partners in Working for Wetlands.
Recognising the ability of SANBI to play this cross-cutting and integrating role, the Biodiversity Act confers on the Institute a mandate to co-ordinate and implement programmes for the rehabilitation of ecosystems, with the involvement of civil society. This allows SANBI to integrate Expanded Public Works Programme approaches within a broader set of activities related to the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands. This promotes an ecosystem approach that does replica watches not pursue rehabilitation in isolation of other activities, and strengthens the sustainability of interventions undertaken through Working for Wetlands.
