Management Framework


The management and operations of the Conservancy is guided by the Management Framework. In essence this is the business plan of the Conservancy which has been prepared through an extensve public participation process.

A formal document is being prepared for submisson and acceptance by the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Through 2009 there were a number of meetings, presentations and workshops at which the people who were attending were asked to give their views as to what the Conservancy needs to address. There were many ideas and suggestions which were carefully looked at and prioritised.
