Soil-plant interactions within the natural resource management (NRM) programme

C4ES is providing scientific technical advisory to the ecological restoration projects within the NRMP in grassland, thicket, savanna and fynbos. The objectives of the work are to: i) monitor and evaluate the effect of NRMP interventions on vegetation dynamics, soil erodibility, rates of soil erosion, soil water content and ecosystem carbon stocks; ii) to generate an income stream from verified carbon credits in subtropical thicket as well as other biomes; and iii) build capacity of graduate students in the field of natural resource management and restoration ecology, with a focus on historically disadvantaged individuals.
