The Design of a National Wetland Monitoring Programme Implementation Manual Volume 2
Expanded Title:Wetlands are complex and dynamic ecosystems that provide indispensable services to the people and the environment of South Africa. In order to protect and manage the remaining wetlands of the country, assessment, monitoring and reporting on the state of wetlands is crucial. The South African Department of Water and Sanitation conceptualized a National Aquatic Ecosystem Health Monitoring Programme (NAEHMP) in the early 1990s. Although a number of monitoring programmes have been implemented under the NAEMP, a wetlands monitoring programme has yet to be established. With this need in mind the WRC issued a directed call for a project entitled the design of a National Wetland Monitoring Programme (NWMP) following a phased approach. The phases were: • Phase 1 – conducting a situation analysis regarding the complexities of monitoring wetland health or integrity and developing a framework that can serve as the basis for phases 2 and 3; • Phase 2 – designing a monitoring programme and developing an implementation plan; • Phase 3 Pilot testing.
