Resource summary

Amathole District Municipality lies within the Eastern Cape Province with jurisdiction over a diverse range of ecosystems, ranging from coastal dunes to forested hills in the hinterland. There are many sensitive and conservation worthy areas within Amathole District Municipality, such as subtropical thicket, wetlands, river systems and cultural sites, all of which have associated rare and endagered species. While rich in natural, cultural and historical resources, Amathole District Municipality is faced with a number of challenges including addressing inequality and the legacy of apartheid, unemployment, housing shortages, poverty and pollution of natural resources. The growing needs of the increasing population in Amathole District Municipality have also resulted in a growing demand for development. Amathole District Municipality recognises that, although development must be economically and socially acceptable, it is imperative that development challenges facing Amathole District Municipality be addressed in an environmentally sustainable manner.
