The Makana Municipality LEAP (Local Environmental Action Plan) involves a large number of stakeholders, including a number of Rhodes University departments and institutions. The LEAP process - also known as the 'LEAP Consultative Consortium' - was initiated in 2004. Its vision: "to deliver quality products in partnership with interested stakeholders, that are accepted by the community, implementable and environmentally sustainable, towards improving the quality of life of all the people of Makana, as a catalyst for similar initiatives in southern Africa."
The Makana LEAP Advisory Committee, coordinated by Makana Municipality's Environmental Manager, meets about four times a year. The LEAP is endorsed by the Makana Environmental Forum.
