  • Water resource infrastructure development in various nodes e.g. Olifants River in Sekhukhune DM
  • Forestry a key economic activity – forest management, wood production & processing of wood products e.g. pulp for paper, furniture, industry, etc.
  • Associated forestry economic activities include tourism and recreation
  • Water services (supply & sanitation) a key service for all economic activities.
support to improving quality of livelihoods for the marginalised 1
Support to : Improving quality of livelihoods for the marginalised - 1

support to improving quality of livelihoods for the marginalised 2
Support to : Improving quality of livelihoods for the marginalised - 2
  • Forestry supports various associated economic and social uses : tourism, fruits, plants, medicinal herbs, energy thru wood & charcoal, grazing for livestock, bee keeping
    • 170 000 people in forestry economic sector – R14 billion to GDP
    • 390 000 – 560 000 rural people dependent on plantation forestry
    • Trade in medicinal plants valued at R60 million per year
    • National Parks and conservation areas located in forests contribute an estimated R15.5 billion per year
  • Environmental management & protection : grey water, effluent management, resource protection, environmental health (water related diseases)
  • Transfer of water services schemes and forests to local authorities (communities)
  • Spiritual uses of forest and water resources.

Support to : Maintaining social security net, mobilising human resources & investment in community services
  • Water services identified as an essential basic service : water supply and sanitation (Rural supply and sanitation backlog (Nodes) 34% & 28% of National backlog respectively)
  • Support associated water services : services for hospitals, clinics, schools, etc.
  • Promoting free basic services
  • Promote total effective and quality service : Include higher levels of services & business.
