2. EVALUATING ACTIVITY-BASED EIA AS A TOOL FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE IN A GLOBAL BIODIVERSITY ‘HOTSPOT’ – LESSONS FROM THE CAPE FLORISTIC REGION
BACKGROUND The project outlined here has been submitted to the Western Cape Dept of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning for for World Bank and GEF funding via the SA National Biodiversity Insitute and the Cape Action Plan for People and the Environment. The Integrating Biodiversity into Land Use Decision Making project, led by the Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEADP), in partnership with the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), is part of the C.A.P.E. programme, funded by the Global Environment Facility through the World Bank. The two-year project aims to improve the integration of biodiversity into land use planning and decision making through a combination of activities, including: engaging in institutional co-ordination mechanisms; providing accurate, relevant information and materials; providing appropriate training and targeted awareness-raising; and facilitating one-on-one follow up and support. One activity aims to develop mechanisms for ensuring that biodiversity priorities are mainstreamed into forward planning instruments and decision-making throughout the C.A.P.E domain, including the agricultural sector.
