Establish a restoration benchmark and develop new and effective regional protocols based on sound ecological dynamics to achieve near-natural biodiversity restoration resulting from mining operations, while giving a cross-section of the regional community a greater role in restoration in the Central Namaqualand Coast and the Knersvlakte priority regions. This includes engaging mining operators and other land users to fundamentally change the way they perceive their roles and responsibilities with regard to biodiversity conservation and restoration.

Strategic Direction: 2 Engage key industrial sectors in meeting conservation objectives identified by SKEP
