Biodiversity is recognised globally and nationally as a cornerstone for economic growth and sustainable development.  While South Africa has a wealth of biodiversity resources as the third most biologically diverse country in the world, after Indonesia and Brazil, as a developing country SA has many people that are faced with poverty, unemployment and degraded environments. Furthermore, competition for land is increasing and the pressure on the remaining natural areas, wildlife conservancies and biodiversity in general has never been as high as it is now. Similar to many other African countries, SA is in desperate need of rapid social and economic development to achieve development goals. Whilst this often requires complex trade-offs between economic, social and environmental objectives, research has shown that very often, through proper planning and sustainable development, all three objectives can be achieved simultaneously.
