Example text

There was little or no attention paid to the role of women in South African society. Women should be centrally involved in decision-making about services and the environment. However, there are barriers of a traditionally patriarchal society and strong cultural barriers that have to be overcome. Much of the burden placed on women must be relieved so that they can find time for personal development and development of the family unit. Rural women spend long hours searching for wood and carrying water, to the detriment of their health.

The office should be independent of other government departments, highly responsive, and visible. It should be able to call on the technical resources of government departments and bodies such as the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). It should report to the President and, through that office, annually to Parliament so that it can table public reports on its activities and major findings. There are a number of models using this innovative approach to environmental rights, but most are new and experimental.

This has caused severe degradation of such land. Landlessness, and the resulting overcrowding and overgrazing, as well as inappropriate farming methods on commercial farms, has given rise to severe land degradation and soil erosion. In general, South African soil is poor and easily eroded, so it is very sensitive to mismanagement. Acidification is the second most important cause of degradation of arable land. There is a severe risk of increased land degradation if certain preventative measures do not accompany rural restructuring and land redistribution.
