Collaboration

Our modus operandi is to work in collaboration with like-minded organisations and individuals. Examples of our recent projects include the following:

Photographic Essay: Thirsty alien trees, no water left and climate confusion: What version of sustainable development are we leaving our children?

The main tenet of this photographic essay is that there is not enough water available for South Africa’s current and planned development, and that there is a need to examine the nexus between our scarce water resources, potential climate change impacts, and the decision to plant more water intensive timber plantations. Coupled with this conundrum are the issues of food security, or the lack thereof, and the potential water and food security impact of alien invasive plants, including the uncontrolled expansion of invasive timber plantation species such as Black Wattle, Pines and Eucalypts which take over valuable land and water resources.
