Transitioning to a Green Economy
The ABI partnership recognises that economic growth and action on environmental conservation can be achieved together. What’s more, actions taken to tackle environmental conservation can in fact often generate better economic growth.
So ABI’s ‘Transitioning to a Green Economy’ theme aims:
The ABI Partnership has undertaken a host of actions to support this theme.
ABI hosted the ‘Opportunities and Solutions: Towards the Green Economy in the Overberg’ workshop with Bantamsklip Organisation, Switch Africa Green (presented by REEEP) and SANEDI in Caledon in April 2016.
The themes highlighted by the participants at this workshop and the discussions that followed, formed the basis for the formulation of a strategy, ‘Extending and Deepening ABI’s Impact on the Green Economy in the Overberg’. This strategy identified four broad programmes.
Five new projects receive ABI support. The projects work to contribute to biodiversity conservation & environmental education in the Overberg.
ABI Partners met on 26 November 2015. "The current weather forecasts and historic trends show that the Overberg is likely to face a tough fire season" Learn More
