What We Do

Policy and Advocacy


Our policy work focuses on integrating specific environmental policy deliverables into non-environmental infrastructure and legislation, specifically focusing on biodiversity financing and area-based conservation measures. Our Fiscal Benefit Project continues to lead efforts in the development and implementation of South Africa’s first biodiversity tax incentive, enabling private and communal landowners to pay less tax for formally protecting Key Biodiversity Areas.


Our advocacy work focuses on safeguarding our threatened ecosystems and the biodiversity that they contain. We do this through both reactively addressing direct threats (cases) and by proactively engaging with government and the private sector in order drive change (projects).
