The focus of this paper is on the analysis of two South African natural resource management case studies that could demonstrate real or potential linkages between NRM and the South African UNCCD National Action Plan (NAP). This is done within the context of NRM programs and projects emerging since the installation of the first democratic government in 1994. Given the historical distortions of the past, rural poverty and land degradation is concentrated in former ‘homeland’ areas, mainly under communal tenure (Hoffman and Ashwell 2001). This report thus focuses on community based NRM (CBNRM) in the broad sense, and also allude to broader NRM projects such as the Working for Water Initiative. IUCN/FRAME
