Mainstreaming Biodiversity into Land Use Regulation & Management at the Municipal Scale

The project’s goal is to enhance the sustainable and effective conservation of globally significant biodiversity in South Africa through exploring, piloting and implementing innovative mechanisms and approaches to mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services into the regulation and management of land and resource use in the landscape at the municipal scale.

Rationale
