Master's Professional Reports Abstract



An Evaluation of the Transformation of the South African National Parks.
Saunders, Hilary Jane
REPORT 2000 S87 Public Affairs Library

This report describes the role of the South African National Parks today and how it has undertaken its transformation within the context of the new South African political dispensation that came about with the South African National Parks in its dual role of primary steward of the country's biodiversity, and as a provider of world-class tourism destinations. The assessment is conducted against the background of the South African government's policies for economic growth where development of the tourism sector has been identified as a national priority. The report assesses the success with which the South African National Parks is addressing the difficulties of stewardship, lack of funding, and diverse and conflicting constituencies.
