On the 23rd of July 2018, Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve set up an exhibition showing all of the ongoing projects of CWBR at Stellenbosch Town Hall, alongside other organisations including ChangeAbility, Badisa, Winelands Fire Protection and more. The event, to mark the hand-over of funds from Cape Winelands District Municipality to the mentioned organizations as well as CWBR for the new year.
Another very exciting development within the Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve, which has now gained international recognition: The University of Stellenbosch Botanical Garden.
Our planet is in urgent need to develop sustainable methodologies and emission-reduction programs for food production, energy production, wastewater treatment... you name it! Often emission-reduction programs lack the ability to boost economic growth, which is the first priority for most of the developing countries. However, societies and communities are increasingly moving from conventional methods to produce and discharge goods to more into resource recovery -based models and waste-to-energy type of systems to avoid and reduce negative impacts of the changing climates. Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve as an environmental organisation tackles both, climate change adaptation, and mitigation measures.
