Sustainable Wildlife Economies Project

(SWEP)

Our goal is to generate knowledge that will help design sustainable, innovative and inclusive wildlife economies

We also seek to create skilled employment in the conservation sector, fill critical information gaps for policy-makers and practitioners, and create public awareness of South Africa's unique biodiversity economy.

We have formed a great consortium of partners to achieve this!

We conducted a pilot study in the Eastern Cape from Feb - March 2021 and are now preparing to upscale.
