Africa: National State of the Environment Report

In 2004, SRK was commissioned by the South African Government to report on the drivers and state of South Africa’s biophysical and social environments. The team hosted stakeholder workshops to solicit technical input, views and opinions from civil society, government business, NGOs and academia and reported on policy responses addressing environmental and social change. The report highlighted the initiatives presently underway for policy makers, areas where action was needed, and presented a long-term environmental outlook for South Africa to 2025.

The team of over 30 experts reported on biodiversity and ecosystem health, inland water, land, marine and coastal resources, human settlements and environmental governance. SRK managed and facilitated the process culminating in 2006 in the published report: South Africa Environment Outlook. The report became a principal information source in the Southern African Development Community Regional Environmental Education Programme, run by the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa in the Global Environment Outlook (GEO‑4) prepared by the United Nations Environment Programme and in the National Strategy for Sustainable Development in South Africa. It was also presented in a number of leading national newspapers and journals and was discussed in the South African Parliament.
