ABOUT THE SOUTHERN CAPE LANDOWNERS INITIATIVE
Established in 2010, The Southern Cape Landowners Initiative is a public platform for landowners and land managers with an interest in the control and eradication of invasive alien plants.
SCLI is supported by the Table Mountain Fund, an associated Trust of WWF South Africa – www.wwf.org.za/tmf
Invasive alien plants (IAP) have been identified as the number one threat to biodiversity (in particular Fynbos eco systems), water security, erosion, climate change and fire risk in the Southern Cape
In order to establish a collaborative entity to address and coordinate regional efforts to control and eradicate IAP’s, the Southern Cape Landowners Initiative (SCLI), was established in 2010.
SCLI is the product of the amalgamation of interest on IAP matters by public, parastatal and private landowners and conservation bodies, which make up The Southern Cape Landowners Initiative.
