Project Description

Economic System & Activities

The Limpopo Basin is a region of significant economic contribution. Massive mining activities, commercial agriculture, industrial timber, large scale conservation and tourism generates an enormous amount of financial wealth and other benefits, but these benefits do not always reach the vast majority of local people. Some of these major economic activities are in conflict with one another over resources, for example commercial agriculture and conservation. In order to address these conflicts and inequalities, alternative responses such as common property associations, agricultural cooperatives, participatory governance, downstream beneficiation and the stimulation of local economic development are being explored.
