5.4Framework for Strategic Environmental Assessment.


The National Policy on Natural Resources Conservation and Development (National Conservation Strategy Coordinating Agency, 1990) has focused on key environmental issues and solution packages. It establishes the NCSA and its advisory body, the NCSA Board and proposes environmental legislation to particularly make it easy to advocate for environmentally friendly policies and programmes. The incorporation of an EIA on all development projects becomes an integral part of development planning for which Kgatleng DDP6 is no exception.
A broad stakeholder involvement in the development plan process ensures a sense of ownership for natural resources and hence spontaneous need for their conservation and protection.
