Sustainable water catchment protection (SuWaC)seeks to protect water catchment through creation and training of water catchment committees members, sensitization of communities on the need to protect water catchments, development of sustainable livelihoods for people adjacent to water catchments, selection and planting of appropriate trees Species around water catchments, creation of nurseries and follow up of planted catchments. One of the main ways through which we want to succeed in the deal is by involving the local councils in the fight. We have signed an MOU with the Nkambe and Fundong Council and working with them closely to protect some 7 water catchments. We are also encouraging eucalyptus farmers in the North West Region to switch to more environmentally friendly timber species like Greveillea robuster.
