This review follows a five day day field based learning session on the failure to implement the co management agreement in Dwesa Cwebe. It highlights a range of problems evident in 2007/8 including:

  • Remote location with poor road infrastructure resulting in officials being reluctant to venture into the area and to allocate the necessary travelling time
  • A Settlement Agreement which does not seem to enjoy the support of some of the signatory departments
  • Overwhelmingly complex project requiring a high level of development skills to implement.
  • Institutional confusion and a failure to co-ordinate government inputs.
  • Large number of discrete communities who possess an inadequate and sometimes different understanding of the Settlement Agreement.
  • Lack of progressive and determined leadership among the communities.
  • No active legal representation for the claimant community
