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
