This project forms part of a thesis for a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture at the Department of Architecture, University of Pretoria. Not only is macro-scale or regional design a very important part of Landscape Architecture but a very interesting field that I wanted to explore through this project. Extensive studies have been made by the Cape Action Plan for the Environment (CAPE) on the biodiversity conservation for the Cape Floral Kingdom. A Biodiversity Strategy and action Plan for the Cape Floral Kingdom was developed. It is my intention to understand the Gourits River Catchment Area (further referred to as GRCA) as an interacting process, to interpret this as a value system and to designate appropriate land uses.
