Country Name: South Africa

Project Description:

The South Africa TEEB aims to assess the value of biodiversity and unpack the associated ecosystem services on an ongoing basis in line with local value systems and global trade regimes. Further in 2012, a National workshop was held to discuss the State of Play Report and identify gaps for the next phase. From the proceedings of the workshop a gap analysis was conducted. The next phase is to develop a TOR for a strategic level valuation of the key priority areas as identified in the 2011 National Biodiversity Assessment.

Scope: National

Implementers and Donors:

The Department of Environmental Affairs in partnership with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), International Union for the Conservation of Nature and the South African Biodiversity Institute.
