The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) in conjunction with Working for Water (WfW) has identified a need to rehabilitate degraded wetlands in South Africa.

This report, authored by Terry J Winstanley of Enact International, is divided into three broad sections.  The first of these considers those laws and policies which govern wetland rehabilitation in general terms.
