Green Economy

KZN DEDT recently developed a report entitled “Unlocking the Green Economy” within the province that identified the following priority areas for growth within the province:

  1. Greening tourism (eco-tourism)
  2. Greening food production (no till agricultural practices)
  3. Greening energy production (co-generation from sugar cane)
  4. Greening water production (rain water harvesting; grey water systems)
  5. Supporting the development of the Green Services Sector.
In terms of opportunities that were identified within this report, and relate to the Ugu district, there is massive potential particularly around bio-fuel production from cane and timber agri-waste, rainwater harvesting, waste-packaging plants and recycling, and solar-heating (especially in rural areas).
