The GCBR aims to be a catalyst for change towards solving one of sustainable development’s biggest issues: the disconnection between people and nature. It offers a full range of action-oriented initiatives across six themes – Land & Landscapes; Water Resources; Biodiversity; Economic Diversity & Livelihoods; Knowledge, Learning & Education; and Institutions – all aimed at securing the future of our beautiful region.
The Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve (GCBR) is a voluntary citizens’ initiative dedicated to the conservation of its region’s biodiversity, tied to the socio-economic development for the wellbeing of its peoples. Governed by members, it is a registered non-profit company with the tax status of a public benefit organisation. UNESCO has designated the region as a place of major biodiversity significance for the planet.
