There is a clear challenge with respect to the link between development and sustainable wetland management. The challenge is to maintain and reinstate the functions of South Africa’s wetlands in order to ensure that the per capita ecosystem service levels provided by wetlands keep pace with a developing population and its growing demands on the resource base. This can only be achieved by giving effect to the National Water Act (No. 36 of 1998) (NWA) in co-operation with other relevant authorities and stakeholders.
