Local Authorities Project
To improve compliance of local authorities with their environmental responsibilities.
About the initiative:
In this project GCBR seeks to influence local municipalities to share its vision of increasing socio-ecological resilience and sustainability. Through proactive engagement with all 10 local authorities in our domain, the project aims to ensure that GCBR‘s objectives are incorporated and spatially represented in each local authority’s development plan.
Activities to be undertaken:
- Compilation of a Biosphere Reserve Spatial Framework to guide municipal decision-making
- Continuous engagement with municipal planning processes to gain leverage
- Municipal budgets are allocated to adopt GCBR proposals and innovations
