De Beers Impact Report - December 2020

Situating the project

The most acute environmental problems are in rural developing settings, where natural resources are central to income and meeting daily needs. Land-based activities such as farming, livestock husbandry, and consumption and trade in natural resources (e.g. fuelwood, wild plants) are significantly impacted by environmental change. Communities rely more heavily on the environment as a buffer against household distresses, such as job loss or mortality. The state of the local natural environment is, therefore, central to the well-being of households in rural regions in the area.

The Programme is running in ten schools in the Blouberg Local Municipality , near Alldays.
