Wetlands and Well-being: Getting more out of South Africa’s wetlands
Expanded Title:This handbook is a product of a research project entitled Wetlands in South Africa: Their Contribution to Wellbeing commissioned by the Water Research Commission and led by Duncan Hay and Associates. (Report 1986.1/1/14). The work was conducted in association with colleagues at AWARD, the Inina Craft Agency, University of KwaZulu-Natal and WWF Mondi Wetlands Programme. The focus is on freshwater inland wetlands but the lessons are derived from and could equally be applied to other aquatic systems, particularly rivers, dams, lakes, estuaries and our coastline. So as to provide an easily read narrative, literature is not cited in the text, but the main sources of information used in compiling this handbook are detailed in Appendix 1 and briefly summarised. Also, all those that are open access resources are included in the CD that accompanies the handbook. The CD also contains a decision support system developed as part of this project, final technical report as well as a series of case-studies.
