K2C/ Wildlands CEBA Project

Wildlands Conservation Trust, a dynamic KZN-based Non-Governmental Organisation, is partnering with K2C Networks for the implementation of an innovative programme aimed at benefitting the poor while they are taking care of eco-system restoration. The K2C/Wildlands Community Ecosystem Based Programme has two components: 1) River Restoration by removing alien plants in the Blyde Riverine Forests, 2) Tree/Waste Entrepreneurs: Tree/Waste Facilitators based at schools in support of K2C partners’ outreach programmes are employed to create networks of Community-based Entrepreneurs that grow trees/collect waste that is bartered for livelihood goods.

A copy of the final feasibility study is attached below as well as an interesting article on the current state of our rivers as published in the Popular Mechanics Magazine December 2010 issue.
