Conservation South Africa (CSA) is committed to helping society to adopt a more sustainable approach to development, one that considers and values nature at every turn.
Over the last decade CSA has demonstrated Conservation International's mission of delivering human well-being through conservation of healthy ecosystems and the goods and services they produce.
CSA's multi-faceted approach to conservation is building regional capacity at every level in order to increase environmental and social resilience to climate change and to set a course for development which will sustain communities and the ecosystems that support them into the future.
CSA's key objective is to work towards a future where humans live in harmony with nature. They are making this future a reality by focusing on projects that have both an enabling (influencing policies, markets, knowledge and funding) and an implementation (demonstrating tangible outcomes on the ground) impact. This work is carried out through strong alliances with key partners, by working within nationally recognized and scientifically defined landscape-scale corridors, and by ensuring that their work directly supports larger scale policies and targets.
CSA is a member of the CI network, which has offices in more than 30 countries, more than 1,000 partner organisations, and thousands of projects worldwide.
