What We Do





The Tsitsa Project seeks to enable and support sustainable landscape management, sustainable livelihoods and the development of polycentric, participatory governance in the Tsitsa River catchment area, in the rural Eastern Cape of South Africa. The Project is ambitious in scale and scope, and is intentionally seeking to “do things differently” in the way it approaches research, implementation and capacity building activities.

Tsitsa Project’s Guiding principles;

  1. Social-ecological principles and resilience thinking
  2. Transdisciplinarity
  3. A collaborative, reflexive, and adaptive orientation
  4. Expansive learning and capacity development
  5. Polycentric governance
  6. Towards equitable participation
  7. Scientific-technical foundation and evidence base.
