CONFIRMATION OF THE SCALE OF THE CAPTIVE WILDLIFE INDUSTRY IN SOUTH AFRICA
World Environment Day 5th June 2021
The EMS Foundation will be making a series of statements, the contents of which are in the public’s best interest. We are focusing our attention on the conservation of South Africa’s wildlife, especially with regard to the essence of the decision making process following the release of the Report by the High-Level Panel of Advisors to the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment.
THE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY THE HIGH LEVEL PANEL OF ADVISORS TO DFFE
How are laws and policies about wildlife, the biodiversity and the natural environment made in the South African government?
Making new laws and policies involves a number of stages during which times key issues are debated and negotiated before being finalised as official government policy or being passed as a new law. This process can take years from the proposal stage until it’s impactful.
A government policy outlines what DFFE hopes to achieve and the methods and principles it will use to implement them. A policy document states the goals and laws required to achieve these goals.
