LandCare programme at the Western Cape Department of Agriculture
LandCare is a national movement aimed at restoring sustainability to land and water management in both rural and urban areas. It encompasses integrated sustainable natural resource management where the primary causes of natural resource decline are recognised and addressed. LandCare is community based and community led and seeks to achieve sustainable livelihoods through capacity building and related strategies. LandCare policies will be developed and achieved through the formation of partnerships with a wide range of groups from within and outside Government through a process that blends together appropriate upper level policy processes with bottom-up feedback mechanisms.
