The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve promotes a sustainable approach to those living, working and visiting the area. Conservation and sound environmental management of the biodiversity present in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve are important aspects of the biosphere. But so, too, are the economic and human developments within the biosphere reserve as well as functions like education and training, monitoring and evaluation, and sharing of information and data.

The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve Company (KBRC) works in collaboration with a number of key players to achieve the goals and objectives of the UNESCO mandate. The public and private sectors as well as individuals often team together to work on projects.

Government

  • SA Department of Environmental Affairs
  • Western Cape Provincial Government – Department of Environmental Affairs
  • Cape Nature
  • Overstrand Municipality (including Rooiels, Pringle Bay, Betty's Bay, Hangklip-Kleinmond)
  • Overberg District Municipality
  • Theewater Municipality (including Grabouw)

Business

Businesses based within the KBR have a key function to operate their enterprises in a sustainable manner that does not harm the environment, its employees, nor the residents of the communities in which they work. The private sector plays a vital role in creating jobs, providing training, and growing the economic activity in the area.

Non-government Organizations (NGOs)

Academia

Support for education, training and research within a biosphere reserve are mandated by UNESCO MAB. Universities, colleges, academic departments, research bodies and students contribute to a better understanding of the biosphere. Collectively, they provide education and training to students, and perform specialized research resulting in valuable data and information on the KBR. The key institutions involved are:

Non-government Organizations (NGOs)

  • University of Cape Town
  • Stellenbosch University
  • CSIR

Individuals

The KBRC is indebted to many dedicated individuals and members of the community who contribute their time to the organization. They add value by volunteering their time, participating in KBRC or community activities and events, and by continuing their support for the principles of a biosphere reserve.
