Frances Baard District Municipality Wetland Case Study
Case studies

Frances Baard District Municipality (FBDM) is located in the semi-arid, eastern part of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Wetlands within the area are considered to be unique in that they are largely ‘drylands’ for most of the year. Yet during the rainy season they become a critical water source for many of the towns located in the region, as well as some of South Africa’s most important breeding grounds for a number of bird populations, including the Lessor Flamingo (Phoenicus minor).
